What is a Lead Disclosure Statement?
In addition to the Lead Disclosure Statement, landlords must also provide a tenant with the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) pamphlet entitled "Protect Your Family From Lead In Your Home." The regulation does not require the landlord to have the property inspected, but only to disclose information they may already have about lead in the property. The landlord and tenant (and agent, if involved) signing a lease are required to sign the Lead Disclosure Statement, and the landlord must retain the signed form for at least three years as proof that they have followed the rules.
When to use a Lead Disclosure Statement:
- You're a landlord leasing property built before 1978.
- You've fallen in love with a rental property built before 1978 and want to rent it.
