EPA Revises Lead Paint Disclosure Form

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized revisions to the Buyer/Seller and Landlord/Tenant Lead-Based Paint Disclosure form. The changes will help agents and consumers fill out the form correctly, standardize responses and reduce errors, thereby reducing agent liability.

The changes do not alter what information is required of agents or consumers—the form has been revised to improve and clarify how the information is conveyed. NAR staff has contacted the EPA for any additional guidance on the changes to the form.
