Saw a listing for a 3 bedroom property that appears to be in pretty rough shape, including lead based paint. Does anyone have any tips / experience in dealing with lead based paint in a NJ flip? I'm looking for info on how much it would cost to have this properly addressed by a professional. Thanks in advance!
Any house built before 1978 has lead based paint in it.
It would just need to be scraped and repainted in most instances.
Thanks @Kevin Hill that's what I thought but didn't know if there were any NJ specific complexities.
Ben, I'm not aware of requirements in NJ that you have to use a certified LBP remediation company. But you should check with the Township to see whether they have specific requirements, like a permit. Here are some guidelines in terms of doing it yourself.
You'll need to complete the Lead-Based Paint Disclosure when you're ready to sell, which your Realtor should provide to you.
Don't remove it, just paint over it.
