Renovation, Repair and Painting Program: Property Managers
Homes and other buildings built before 1978 are likely to contain lead-based paint. Renovation, repair or painting work done in those facilities could release hazardous lead dust which can be harmful to you and your residents.
EPA's Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule provides important protections for you and your facility, and also requires that you take certain actions to protect your residents and your business.
NOTE: On March 21, 2022, EPA withdrew two frequent questions concerning property management companies; see 86 FR 60812 or Docket No. EPA-HQ-OECA-2021-0763 for more information.
How can property managers comply with the RRP Rule?
- Does your company perform, offer or claim to perform RRP activities in a pre-1978 residential building or child-occupied facility?
- If yes, then you must become a Lead-Safe Certified Firm.
- If no, then hire only a Lead-Safe Certified firm for building maintenance, repair, or painting activities that could disturb lead-based paint. Find a Lead-Safe Certified Firm.
