Property Owners

“Landlords cannot harass, retaliate against or seek to evict tenants solely because they make good faith complaints to a government agency about violations of any health or safety laws.” Real Property Law §223-b

HUD Disclosure Rule

U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) joint Lead Disclosure Rule requires owners of properties built before 1978 notify potential renters or buyers of the presence of lead paint.


EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP Rule)

The EPA’s RRP rule applies to contractors, property managers, and others who perform renovations in homes built before 1978. The RRP Rule requires that renovations be done by employees certified by the EPA to follow lead-safe work practices.

If your home/rental property was inspected by the Onondaga County Health Department and you received a letter notifying you that lead paint hazards were found on your property,

  • Financial assistance for repairs to remove lead paint may be available.
  • Property owners who do not qualify for free lead inspections may contact an EPA-certified contractor for assistance. A searchable list of certified contractors can be found here.
