Every purchaser of any interest in residential real property on which a residential dwelling was built
prior to 1978, as per Section 4852(d), Chapter 63A, Title 42 of 2010 United States Code is notified
that such property may present exposure to lead from lead-based paint that may place young children
at risk of developing lead poisoning. Lead poisoning in young children may produce permanent
neurological damage, including learning disabilities, reduced intelligence quotient, behavioral
problems, and impaired memory. Lead poisoning also poses a particular risk to pregnant women. The
seller of any interest in residential real property is required to provide the buyer with any information
on lead-based paint hazards from risk assessments or inspections in the seller’s possession and notify
the buyer of any known lead-based paint hazards. A risk assessment or inspection for possible lead-
based paint hazards is recommended prior to purchase.
