Lead paint hazards inspection

1 Reply | Upstate New York, New York


My husband and i are buying an investment property in Kingston NY. Today is the lead paint inspection and the inspector called us to tell us that because the owner of the house had done renovation himself there is active disturbance of lead paint and asbestos and most likely both Hazardous. Any advice on what we should do? should we not close the deal? I hear Lead remediation is a lot of work and money. Is this type of situations common in Kingston NY?? 

Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated.


It all depends on the extent of the disturbances. Sometimes inspectors aren’t all that helpful if they can pinpoint it and show you where are the disturbances are then it’s probably worth it.
