It is always important to inform residential occupants about any potential lead-based paint in apartments. Roughly 75% of U.S residential area built prior to 1978 contains some amount of lead-based paint. Infants and young children are the most vulnerable to lead-based paint exposure. Lead paint can cause the following problems:
– IQ deficiencies.
– Reading and Learning Disabilities.
– Impaired hearing.
– Reduced Attention Spans.
– Hyperactivity and Behavioral Problems.
To avoid putting residential occupants at risk to these potential lead hazards, rental agents, property managers and building owners must follow EPA lead paint disclosure requirements to spread awareness.
Lead poisoning is the most prevalent threat to children’s health but it is also very preventable.
The federal law makes it a necessity for families to have the right to know if potential lead-paint hazards are in a prospective home. This information is especially important for households with pregnant women and children younger than six years of age because they are the most vulnerable to adverse health risks from lead-based paint.
Both renters and buyers of an apartment or home must verify they have received required warnings and disclosure information. The disclosure information includes the EPA pamphlet, Protect Your Family From Lead in Your Home.
