Lead-Based Paint - Waiver

As part of an sales offer, i was asked to sign a document that says that i am waiving the opportunity to conduct a risk assessment or inspection for presence of lead-based paint hazards in the housing. Based on the seller disclosure, he is not aware of the presence of lead-based paint, however he has never done a test. I am not feeling very comfortable agreeing to this, because i will ultimately be liable in case lead-based paint will be discovered at some point down the road. Any thoughts or advice?
