Federal law requires a 10-day period before being obligated under contract so that a homebuyer can conduct an inspection for lead based paint in homes built before
1978. Parties may mutually agree, in writing, to lengthen or shorten the time
period for inspection or homebuyers may waive this inspection opportunity. Prospective homebuyers of homes built before 1978 can contact me for a lead inspection before moving in to ensure that your new home is free of any lead based paint hazards.
