lead based

Beginning July 22, 2022, lead paint inspection and remediation are required for residential one- and two-family rental properties upon tenant turnover or by July 24, 2024, if there is no tenant turnover.

There are two types of lead-based paint inspections: visual inspections and dust wipe sampling inspections. The type of inspection required varies from municipality to municipality and is determined by the blood level of children six years of age or younger.

Revised Contract of Sale and Residential LeaseBeginning July 22, 2022, lead paint inspection and remediation are required for residential one- and two-family rental properties upon tenant turnover or by July 24, 2024, if there is no tenant turnover. This new law is not currently tied to time-of-sale requirements. Multiple dwelling units have long been regulated for lead.

New Jersey Realtors®️ updated the Real Estate Sales Contract to provide notice to buyers purchasing the property with tenancies or with intentions to use the property as a rental. The revision is in section 12, lines 213-214, and section 13, new (D) rental dwelling inspections.

New Jersey Realtors® also updated the Residential Lease, section 35, and added new (B) New Jersey lead-based paint inspection law acknowledgment.


JUNE 2022 MARKET STATSRising inflation, soaring home prices, and increased mortgage interest rates have combined to cause a slowdown in the U.S. housing market. To help quell inflation, which reached 8.6% as of last measure in May, the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by three quarters of a percentage point in June, the largest interest rate hike since 1994. Higher prices, coupled with 30-year fixed mortgage rates approaching 6%, have exacerbated affordability challenges and rapidly cooled demand, with home sales and mortgage applications falling sharply from a year ago.
