ICOR Monthly Meeting - EPA Lead Based Paint "Renovate Right" Regulations

Investors and Contractors Take Notice!

If You Disturb more than 6 sq ft of Painted Surface (Includes Paints, Stains and Varnished Areas), This Law Could Affect You!  Under the new Federal EPA rule, that went into effect in April 2010, Contractors who perform renovation, repairs, and painting jobs in pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities must have the proper training and documentation of training and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

Do You Do:

  • Any construction on Buildings?
  • Residential Remodels?
  • Single Family Housing Construction?
  • Multi-family Housing Construction, etc.?

How will this New Program Affect You as a Fix & Flip Investor, Landlord or Contractor? Does it apply to you?  Will it cost you money? What must you do to be in compliance?  How can you avoid hefty fines?

New EPA Lead Regulations that affect Landlords, Renovators, and Investors took effect on April 22nd.  The new EPA program called "Renovate Right" applies to virtually every housing provider and trades contractor in the country, with some narrowly drawn exceptions.

The penalty for a single violation can be up to $35,000! That's a hefty fine for non-compliance!

Join us next Thursday night (8/26/10) as we welcome a representative from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as he explains exactly how the new laws and changes affect the way we currently operate our businesses.

There is a lot to know about these new regulations and in order to be prepared for the changes we encourage everyone to visit:
