Property Managers in Oregon and Idaho Fined for Failure to Warn of Lead Paint Hazards to Renters
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has ordered three property management companies in Oregon and Idaho to pay more than $15,000 in federal penalties for failing to disclose lead-based paint hazards to renters. A joint inspection by the EPA and U.S. Department of housing and Urban Development revealed violations of the federal Lead-Based Paint Real Estate Notification and Disclosure Rule . Because of health risks associated with lead, the federal disclosure rules require property management companies to inform potential renters or buyers of the presence of lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards in housing built before 1978. Elite Property Management, Inc. in Corvallis, Oregon; Advanced Management, Inc. of Keizer, Oregon; and Hill Rental Properties, LLC, of Moscow, Idaho were all fined for violating these rules.
