New Jersey State Legislature has decided to implement a lead-based paint remediation program. The program is enforced through P.L.2021, Ch. 182, and the law requires that all rental properties constructed before 1978 be inspected for hazardous lead paint conditions. The law went into effect on July 22, 2022 and it requires the first inspection be conducted by July 22, 2024 or upon tenant turnover, whichever comes first.
