NJ’s new lead-based paint law goes into effect in July of 2022 and directly targets ALL pre-1978 rental properties.  This new law is being referred to as, New Jersey’s Lead Safe Certification and will require lead-paint inspections, (Visual &/or Dust wipes) on all nonexempt rental property at turnover. Additionally, every three years going forward, it will increase lead-based paint hazard education to state residents and will fund New Jerseys Lead Hazard Control Assistance Act. 

Here are some additional resources to supplement the training that Lee Wasserman of LEW Environmental Services LLC shared with us on July 12th via ZOOM. (Members may request a copy of the webinar from the office via email)
