Lead has been the cause of sickness for a very long time and is well documented as a historical environmental hazard in the United States. The government banned the use of lead-based paints in homes in 1978. Besides the promulgation of federal regulations, some states, including Rhode Island, have laws, regulations, and standards on how to inform and protect people from the dangers of lead.
This course is designed to fulfill mandatory continuing education for real estate professionals in Rhode Island. The objective of this seminar is to provide professionals with an overview of current law and procedures pertaining to lead paint mitigation and its effects on real estate transactions in the state of Rhode Island.
