Hi, I am renting my unit, I have the lead paint disclosure brochure (the EPA website provides it) but what do you all do for a signature page indicating I gave the tenant the brochure. Is there an official page to sign? I have been unable to find one.
In Rhode Island there is a lead paint disclosure form where you add what you disclosed and you can also put it in the lease that they received the brochure and have them initial it. You can look on your state real estate web page for one too.
It's part of my rental agreement - that way all signatures are in one place. It's a pretty standard inclusion - most ready-to-use forms have it in there, since it's required by the Feds.
This is a section of our rental agreement addressing various disclosures:
Disclosures: Tenant acknowledges that Landlord has made the following disclosures regarding the premises:
a.Disclosure of Information on Lead-Based Paint and/or Lead-Based Paint Hazards (handout)
b.Disclosure of Mold (handout)
c.Disclosure of Smoke Detector (handout)
d.Radon gas is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that, when it has accumulated in a building in sufficient quantities, may present health risks to persons who are exposed to it over time. The premise has not been tested for radon gas. Additional information regarding radon and radon testing may be obtained from the county public health department.
e.Water Heater: Tenant affirms that at move in, hot water heater is set not higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit (49 degrees Celsius) in full compliance with the law. Tenant has inspected water heater.
