The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has stepped up enforcement of the law governing Lead Safe Practices. The EPA has fined several individuals and contractors in the last few months. One in particular against Juan Hernandez in New England for $127,150.00 for violating lead paint disclosure laws.
These laws require than any structure built prior to 1978 which will have work done that will manipulate painted surfaces be tested for lead. If lead is discovered, it must be disclosed to the owner and restoration practices established by the EPA be followed
