NEW IN 2024: Lead Safety Requirements for Rental Properties
All non-exempt rental dwelling units must be inspected for lead-based paint.
The first inspection must take place no later than July 22, 2024. This requirement is in accordance with N.J.A.C. 5:28A.
Property owners are responsible for finding their own DCA-certified lead evaluation contractor, or NJ DoH licensed lead inspector, to have their property evaluated via dust wipe sampling for the presence of lead based paint.
Upon completion of the testing, the property can be deemed either LEAD SAFE or LEAD FREE. If any lead hazards have been identified, they are to be addressed either by interim controls or by abatement. If no hazards are found, the inspector shall produce documentation of the findings, which will either include a LEAD SAFE Certificate, or a determination that the property is LEAD FREE. The property owner shall provide this documentation to the City.
