Federal Lead-Based Paint Disclosure Rule (Residential Lead-Base
Paint Hazard Reduction Act of 1992. Section 1018) was enacted to
protect families from exposure to lead from paint, dust, air
pollutition and soil. This law requires disclosure of all known
information on lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards
before the sale or lease of most housing built before 1978.
Sellers, landlords, and their agents are responsible for
providing this information to the buyer or renter before sale or
Any person who knowingly violates the provisions of this subpart
shall be jointly and severally liable to the purchaser in the
amount equal to 3 times the amount of damages incurred. 24 CFR
35.96. Failure or refusal to comply with 35.88 or 35.94 is a
violation of 42 USC 4852(d) and TSCA Section 409 (15 USC 2689).
Violators may be subject to civil and criminal sanctions.
In addition to lead paint, lead is found in air pollution,
storage batteries, solder, pottery glaze, rubber, toys, brass
alloys, plastic beads coated with lead, home-glazed pottery,
ashes and fumes from burning old painted wood, newspapers,
magazines and artists' paint pigments. Evidence suggests that
lead is a greater danger when inhaled than when ingested.
If you feel you and/or your loved ones have been poisoned
through the negligent or intentional acts of others, it is
important to seek medical help to determine how to best detoxify
It is then a good idea to contact the authorities and/or file a
law suit to make sure that the contamination is cleaned up and
no further exposure occurs. For inquiries on Texas Lead-Based
