As a contractor, the presence (or absence) of lead paint or asbestos containing materials in a facility that you will be working at will determine the way you perform your work, the amount of your contract, and the amount of liability you’ll take on.
As a homeowner, lead paint is not typically part of a home inspection like asbestos is, but it may be present in homes built prior to 1978 and likely present in pre-1960 homes. Before any remodeling or renovation projects begin It is important to have your home tested for the presence of lead and asbestos.
Real estate professionals have the privilege of guiding their clients through what is likely the largest financial transaction in most people’s lives.
