Before you buy your Kalamazoo area home, download and read this pamphlet about Lead-Based Paint. Congress passed the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992, also known as Title X, to protect families from exposure to lead from paint, dust, and soil. Section 1018 of this law directed HUD and EPA to require the disclosure of known information on lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards before the sale or lease of most housing built before 1978.

Before ratification of a contract for housing sale or lease, sellers and landlords must:
give this EPA-approved information pamphlet on identifying and controlling lead-based paint hazards ("Protect Your Family From Lead In Your Home" pamphlet, currently available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Russian, Arabic and Somali). Call Kalamazoo REALTORS, the Veenstra Team at 269-350-5514 for more information or to purchase or sell a house.
