#16 Lead Paint Disclosure: Is this still relevant?
VIDEO POST #
Join Todd and Curtis as they give a quick overview of who needs to disclose any known or unknown lead-based paint that may or may not be in the home you are selling prior to a specific year the home was built.
This disclosure is required by every state in America as it is federally mandated. You can learn more about lead-based paint below:
Lead is a highly toxic metal that may cause a range of health problems, especially in young children. When lead is absorbed into the body, it can cause damage to the brain and other vital organs, like the kidneys, nerves and blood.
Lead may also cause behavioral problems, learning disabilities, seizures and in extreme cases, death. Some symptoms of lead poisoning may include headaches, stomachaches, nausea, tiredness and irritability. Children who are lead poisoned may show no symptoms.
Both inside and outside the home, deteriorated lead-paint mixes with household dust and soil and becomes tracked in. Children may become lead poisoned by:
- Putting their hands or other lead-contaminated objects into their mouths,
- Eating paint chips found in homes with peeling or flaking lead-based paint, or
- Playing in lead-contaminated soil
Take a moment to obtain the brochure “Protect Your Family from Lead in Your Home” at U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development website.
