Federal law requires that individuals receive information on lead paint before renting, buying or renovating pre-1978 housing. Landlords are required to disclose known information on lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards before leases take effect. Leases must include a disclosure about lead-based paint. Additionally, landlords must give an EPA-approved information pamphlet (link above).
