[ARCHIVED] Reminder: New Lead-Based Paint Inspection Requirements Become Effective July 22

Please remember, the new lead-based paint inspection requirements pursuant to P.L.2021, c.182, are becoming effective July 22, 2022. The law, signed by Governor Murphy last year, imposes an obligation on municipalities to perform or hire a certified lead evaluation contractor to perform inspections of certain single-family, two-family, and multiple rental dwellings for lead-based paint hazards every three years or upon tenant turnover where there is no valid lead-safe certification. Municipalities must permit dwelling owners/landlords to directly hire a certified lead evaluation contractor for this purpose. 
  
 Municipalities that fail to comply with the new inspection requirements may be subject to a penalty of up to $1,000 per week.
  
Municipal officials are encouraged to review the guidance issued by the Department of Community Affairs (DCA), along with the recent Lunch and Learn program hosted by the League, and presented by the DCA, on these new requirements.
