NYC Local Law One and Lead Paint Abatement

Lead Hazard Tape

New York law places responsibilities on residential landlords regarding lead paint issues that may be present in their units. Many of these duties can be found in New York City’s Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Act of 2003, commonly referred to as Local Law One. Landlords generally lack the protection of insurance coverage for lead paint liability and therefore should take certain steps before purchasing a building or during ownership should lead paint issues arise.
