Deleading is easier than ever, and more important than ever. Changes in 2017 reduced the cost to landlords, but also changed the legal definition of lead poisoning, increasing our liability.
This segment will give the basics of lead remediation: why lead is hazardous, where we find lead, and how to eliminate the hazard. We will review deleading methods, letters of interim control, and certificates of deleading compliance.
This is not a moderate risk deleader training. Attendees will learn about the DIY deleading training that is available (typically, 12 hours), and will also learn about the costs and benefits of hiring professionals. Lastly, because this is a landlording event, we will talk about deleading with residents in the unit, how to navigate the arrival of children, and how to ensure both you and your renters stay happy and healthy.
This part of the presentation will be given by MassLandlords staff.
