Housing Quality Standards
Homes and apartments built before 1978 have paint that contains lead-based paint. Lead from paint, chips, and dust can pose serious health hazards (especially to children under the age of 6 and pregnant women) if not taken care of properly.
Owners must ensure residents are given basic information on lead-based paint and its hazards, including providing the Protect Your Family from Lead in Your Home pamphlet prior to leasing.
The links below provide lead hazard and safety information.
