Updated lead-based paint pamphlet available

By Peg Ritenour, OAR Vice President of Legal Services/Administration

The EPA has recently updated the lead-based paint pamphlet required to be given to buyers and tenants of housing constructed before 1978. The new version of this pamphlet, titled “Protect Your Family From Lead in your Home,” is available on  the EPA’s website here.

Although the new version of this pamphlet became effective at the end of last year, the EPA indicated that it will allow existing copies of the old forms to be depleted and doesn’t require that these be thrown out. However if you are printing new ones, make sure you are using the updated version.
