Erie has many older homes most of which have not been remediated.  Agents should be aware of their responsibility to provide the required booklet & disclosure.

Thanks for reminder, Fred Griffin

I remember years ago I had four offers on a home built in the ealry 70's.  Two buyers asked for LBP testing and any remediation.  Two didn't.  Naturally, the seller went with those that didn't.

In seller markets, buyers need to consider how much they ask for in terms of inspections if they really want a house.

I don't sell pre-1978 homes very often. But absolutely, brochure is always provided in those cases; disclosures are required by law. But I've yet to ever have a client actually do a lead based paint inspection that would lead to remediation.

Pre-1978 homes are quite common in this area, and yes, the lead paint brochure (it's online) must be shared. A lead paint disclosure form is required as well. I've never had a buyer ask to have the home tested/remediated (yet).

Fairly often, but it's never been an issue.  Lead based paint disclosures are part of every contract in CA as is the lead based paint booklet.  Most homes have been painted several times since 78 so if there is any lead paint it has long been covered up.

Yes, we have that occur quite often; and we do send out the EPA's Pamphlet (and obtain a receipt for it!).

We also pre-load the listing documents with the NWMLS Form for Lead Paint.

On the Selling side the buyer may often check the option to perform a test for the presence of Lead but, not a single one has ever ordered up the test.

Disclosures are required in CA.

Just have the popcorn ceiling removed from a house. I actually do believe that home is immune and it attenuates noise and served as insulation. Costed $1800 for a medium size home. Done.
