Disclosure of Information on Lead-Based Paint and/or Lead-Based Paint Hazards
Lead Warning Statement
Every lessee of any interest in residential real property on which a residential dwelling was built prior to 1978 is notified that such property may present exposure to lead from lead-based paint that may place young children at risk of developing lead poisoning. Lead poisoning in young children may produce permanent neurological damage, including learning disabilities, reduced intelligence quotient, behavioral problems, and impaired memory. Lead poisoning also poses a particular risk to pregnant women. The lessor of any interest in residential real property is required to provide the lessee with any information on lead-based paint hazards from risk assessments or inspections in the lessor’s possession and notify the lessee of any known leadbased paint hazards. A risk assessment or inspection for possible lead-based paint hazards is recommended prior to lease.
