Seller warrants that the home was built (check and/or complete one):
_____ In the year of _____
_____ Before 1978.
_____ In or after 1978.
_____ Seller cannot warrant year home was built.
Seller simply checks whether house was built before or after 1978, or writes in the year the house was built. If the seller does not know when the house was built, he or she simply checks the last option.
In the event this home was constructed before 1978 or should contract not clearly establish that home was built during or after 1978 all parties acknowledge and agree that:
1. Seller warrants that they neither have knowledge of, nor records or reports pertaining to lead-based paint and/or lead based paint hazards in the property.
2. Said contract on home constructed prior to 1978 is also contingent upon a risk assessment or inspection of the property for the presence of lead based paint and/or lead based paint hazards at the purchasers expense until 9pm on the tenth calendar day after contract acceptance (intact lead based paint that is in good condition is not necessarily a hazard. See EPA pamphlet “protect your family from lead in your home” for more information.)
