LeadSmart® Protects both Buyers and Sellers in Real Estate Transactions

It’s estimated that more than 18 million Americans currently live in areas where the drinking water system violates the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s lead and copper rule.

Under existing law, a seller or lessor of a dwelling could potentially have an obligation to disclose lead or copper in the dwelling’s water supply, and could potentially be liable for rescission and/or damages for failure to disclose.

LeadSmart Helps Protect Buyers, Sellers and Real Estate Professionals

The LeadSmart program includes onsite water testing services for lead, a remediation action plan and certification of compliance for lead in drinking water.

Southern California homeowner, Joel Cooper understands the dangers of potential lead exposure from drinking water, and the possible risks from non-disclosure of hazardous materials in real estate transactions, so he was proactive in having his home LeadSmart Certified before listing it on the market.

Joel stated, “Having the LeadSmart Certification on my home ensures that I am protecting both myself and potential buyers. Knowing that my drinking water complies with EPA standards gives me peace of mind in knowing that I am selling a Healthy Home.”
