Lead Safe Testing

Per NJ S1147, effective July 2022, all NJ rental properties that are not exempt will be required upon their first tenant turnover or within two years of the effective date to complete their initial Lead Safe Certification inspection. 

Going forward this law will require property owners to continually re-certify their units as Lead-Safe at either turnover or every three years (whichever comes first).

 

Lead Safe Certifications are only valid for 2 years. 

Lead Safe Wipe Testing Consists of:

  • 2 samples in each bedroom

  • 2 samples in a "common area" (ie: living room or family room)

  • 1 baseline sample
