Lead Based Paint---What Do I Have to Do?

Michael Hodges - Tuesday, August 15, 2017

We’ll stay focused on pre 1978 housing but remember this also pertains, at least in part, to child occupied facilities. First let’s clarify what the EPA considers to be “renovation”.

If the surface to be painted is not disturbed by sanding, scraping or other activities that may cause dust, the work is not considered to be renovation. However, if painting projects involve surface preparation that disturbs paint, such as sanding & scraping, then it is considered renovation.

Here’s an abbreviated list of what you must do prior to renovation:

  • Distribute EPA’s lead pamphlet to occupants/residents
  • For multifamily common areas: distribute pamphlet to tenants or post informational signs about the pending work where they can be seen and contain dates, nature and location of work and be accompanied by pamphlet and/or instructions on access to it.
  • Utilize a lead based paint certified provider for the work

So what’s the big deal? Penalties can go as high as $37,500.00 per violation, per day. For a sobering check, visit this link: - https://www.epa.gov/enforcement/fy2016-enforcement-actions-lead-renovation-repair-and-painting-rule-rrp

FPM Properties has not one but two MPMs (Master Property Manager) and well over 50+ years combined experience on the team and extensive history managing properties in Riverside, Avondale, San Marco, St. Nicholas, Atlantic and Neptune Beaches (just to name a few) which have high concentrations of pre 1978 homes. If you own or are considering purchasing such an investment property and don’t want to deal with all this, you should contact us!

Lead Based Paint---What’s the Deal?

Michael Hodges - Tuesday, August 01, 2017

What is the EPA’S Lead Based Paint RRP Program?

Great and important question! Let’s tackle first from the vantage point of a homeowner (or property manager) with a home OR child occupied facility built prior to 1978.

  • It’s a federal regulation aimed at protecting against lead based paint hazards associated with renovation, repair and painting activities (like painting, carpentry, window replacement, plumbing and electrical work as well as remodeling/repairs)
  • The rule requires workers to be trained to use lead safe work practices and requires renovation firms to be EPA certified (these became fully effective April 22, 2010
  • RRP= Renovation, Repair and Painting. It applies to residential houses, apartments and child occupied facilities (like day care centers) built before 1978.
  • Anyone who is paid to perform work that disturbs paint in housing and child occupied facilities built before 1978 must follow requirements (like painters, plumbers, electricians, general contractors and carpenters)

There are further parameters and details to this which we’ll address in our next blog; for now, if you can’t wait another moment for more details, call us at FPM Properties (904-497-4200) or check out: www.epa.gov/lead

Homes in Atlantic, Neptune and Jacksonville Beaches as well as San Marco, Springfield, Avondale, Riverside and Murray Hill (to name a few) could be subject!
