Document Last Modified: 10/5/2018
The NYC Child Notice for Lead Paint Compliance form is extremely important for both the landlord and the tenant in the renting process. This form is required to notify landlords if there is a child under the age of six residing on the leased premises or staying at the premises often. If a child under the age of six lives in the premises or is presumed to live on the premises at any time the landlord is required to do a visual inspection of the premises to determine if there is any existence of lead based paint. An investigation must be conducted each year, or possibly more often if the owner is aware of any circumstances that may cause a lead hazard. Investigation will also be required if a tenant complains about a dangerous lead hazed condition. Particularly, the investigation will focus on finding lead paint peeling, lead on chew-able surfaces, deteriorated subsurface, and friction and impact surfaces.
Landlords are required to distribute this document to tenants and it the document must be filled out and returned to the Landlord. The law requires annual notifications by owners to all occupants as well as to occupants upon the termination of a lease, lease renewal, and New York lease signing if there are any children under the age of 6 living in the unit.
IMPORTANT: If the tenant does not fill and return the form the landlord is required to attempt an inspection to check if there is a child under 6 on the premises or not.
