Are renovations in short-term lodgings, such as hotels and motels, time share properties, and homeless shelters, covered by the Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule?

Yes, if the property renovated is not a zero-bedroom dwelling. A zero-bedroom dwelling is a residential dwelling in which the living area is not separated from the sleeping area. The term includes efficiencies, studio apartments, dormitory housing, military barracks and rentals of individual rooms in residential dwellings.

The short-term nature of a property's occupancy does not in itself exempt it from the RRP Rule.
