Protect Your Family from Lead in Your Home

Renters: Federal law requires that before signing a lease for housing built before 1978, renters must receive the following from your landlord:

  • An EPA-approved information pamphlet on identifying and controlling lead-based paint hazards: Protect Your Family From Lead in Your Home.  Also available in Spanish.
  • Any known information concerning the presence of lead-based paint hazards in the home or building.
    • For multi-unit buildings, this requirement includes records and reports concerning common areas and other unit when such information was obtained as a result of a building-wide evaluation.
  • An attachment to the contract, or language inserted in the contract, that includes a "Lead Warning Statement" and confirms that the landlord has complied with all notification requirements.

If you have concerns, ask your landlord to get a Lead Hazard Inspection from a certified inspector before signing your lease.
