Lead Paint Law Alert!

George Ash
 continued from front page...

Sandy Watkins, administrator of Alban's lead paint inspection division, reminds all rental property owners and property managers that the Maryland lead-based paint law has a looming deadline. Do not forget FEBRUARY 24, 2006! The Maryland lead paint law, known as HB 760, covers rental housing built before 1978. It requires that 100% of the properties covered by the law must have satisfied the Risk Reduction Standards by February 24, 2006.
This means that every rental unit that is subject to House Bill 760 must have been inspected at least once. If a tenant has been in the dwelling ever since February 24, 1996 when the law became affective, there has been no need for an inspection since there was no turnover. However, such a dwelling with a long-term tenant must be inspected by February 24, 2006.
Sandy asks that owners and property managers schedule early. It is just as valid to have an inspection on a previously uninspected rental dwelling on September 24, 2005 as on February 24, 2006. We anticipate that MDE will be particularly nasty towards Maryland property owners and/or their property managers who fail to have 100% compliance.


Realtors who call George their friend, and his colleagues at Alban, both in the office and fellow home inspectors who enjoy day-to-day camaraderie. We thank George for being himself and for being real. All who have worked with and who know George wish him the very best in his future endeavors.
