Landlords of apartments in multiple dwellings in New York City where a child 6 years old or younger lives must protect against the possibility that children will be poisoned by peeling of dangerous lead based paint. Landlords must remove or cover apartment walls and other areas where lead based paint is peeling. 

The law presumes that lead based paint was used in the apartment if the building was built prior to January 1, 1960. (NYC Health Code §173.14) Landlords must provide all tenants with a pamphlet prepared by the federal Environmental Protection Agency which warns the tenants of the hazards of lead based paint and a disclosure form advising what the landlord knows about the presence of lead based paint in the apartment and building.

Lead Paint Law Compliance

The City's Lead Paint Hazard Reduction Law Went into Effect on August 2, 2004
Local Law 1 of 2004 ("Local Law 1")  is a comprehensive law concerning the prevention of childhood lead poisoning through the remediation of lead paint hazards in housing and day care facilities. This legislation repeals the former lead law, Local Law #38 of 1999.

“Please Note:  Beginning October 1, 2006, the "applicable age" of a child for purposes of compliance with some of the requirements of Local Law #1 of 2004 has been changed from under age seven to under age six. “

Multiple Dwellings Covered Under the Law
The law covers all pre-1960 multiple dwellings. The law also places certain responsibilities on owners in post-1960 to pre-1978 buildings where the owner knows there is lead based paint. Owners whose buildings fall into this category should consult the law. The provisions of Local Law 1 do not apply where title to a multiple dwelling unit is held by a cooperative or condominium and the shareholder of record or his or her family occupies the unit. The law does however apply to cooperative or condominium units occupied by a tenant or subtenant.
