I attended the annual real estate commission update class today- some new and interesting changes to the contracts and other issues— lead based paint becoming more of an issue on older homes for contractors- now required to test for lead base paint if the work disturbs more than 6 square feet of the interior painted surface.
Homes prior to 1940 might have an 86% chance of having lead based paint and homes between 1960-1978 might have a 25% chance of lead based paint based on information shared.
Always good to learn new things!
