All About Local Law 31?

Local Law 31 is an important piece of legislation in New York City that sets standards and requirements for the management of hazardous substances. During the past few years, New York City has made several updates to the NYC Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Act (Local Law 1 of 2004) to create stringent laws to offer the best health protection for children in the city. The most recent update to this law is Local Law 31 of 2022, 2021, which seeks to further protect children from lead exposure. There are 5-year testing requirements for all residential building owners in the NYC region and are required to latest get their homes inspected by August 9, 2025. Apartment dwellers with an age restriction of 6 need inspection to be done much sooner which is approximately one year of the law – by August 9, 2021. If you’ve recently moved to a new apartment or home which has some level of lead exposure, it’s best to call our lead paint testing service in NYC.

Any building which dates back to 1978 or before any residential building built prior to 1960 will require complete inspection and it must take place within 5 years of the effective date of the law latest by August 9, 2025

What Are Lead Paint Based Hazards?

Since 1960, lead based paint has been banned in New York City. However, many older buildings have this type of paint which can be dangerous for the inhabitants, especially children.

Lead-based paint is hazardous and if it starts to chip, flake or deteriorate, then it can become a serious hazard. Inhaling or ingesting these lead particles can cause long-term health issues such as cognitive and neurological damage, learning disabilities or even cause death. Therefore, it is important to take all precautionary measures before moving into an older building.   Other causes of lead based paint poisoning include;

Does Local Law 31 Apply to Condominiums?

Local Law 1 for co-ops and condominiums complies with the lead inspection requirements laid out in Local Law 1 of 2004 & updated in Local Law 31 of 2020. Every condo or co-op unit which is rented or sublet is subject to a new 5-year (or 1-year) XRF inspection process. If your condo or co-op unit is occupied by a shareholder, family or any other owner, then you’re exempt. You must stay on top of the inspection process for your rental units. If you fail to comply with the regulations, your property can be heavily fined and you may face serious legal consequences. So make sure you follow the rules under Local Law 31 for childhood lead poisoning prevention to ensure you have the peace of mind that your home is safe & secure.
