(NJ) Lead paint law into effect

Notice sent to all NJ Landlords>>

Effective July 22, 2022, a Lead safe certification must be provided upon applying for a rental certificate of occupancy.

The act imposes an obligation on municipalities that maintain permanent local agencies for the purposes of conducting inspections and enforcing laws, ordinances, and regulations concerning building and structures, to perform inspections of certain single-family, two-family, and multiple rental dwellings for lead base paint hazards, at times specified in the Act. A municipality shall permit dwelling owners/landlords to directly hire a certified lead evaluation contractor for this purpose. If lead-base paint hazards are identified, then the owner of the dwelling shall remediate the hazards through abatement or lead-based paint hazard control mechanisms.

This effectively rules out most of the towns where homes are 80-100 years old. For decades people just sort of lived with the possibility that at some point in time lead paint existed (under those 50 of layers of paint).

Lead Paint remediation companies are ramping up now. What was an already inflated 5-10 will now cost 20-30k. Companies are going to make a killing. New investors are in for a shock (on top of record high materials, labor, and property costs).
