We’re negotiating a coop in a big prewar building and I’m wondering about lead paint. It seems like for a rental there are disclosure requirements. What about for a sale? The building is pre-war, so there’s obviously a risk that lead paint is present. The unit is renovated and doesn’t have any peeling paint. If we do find lead paint, what kind of ballpark are we looking at to abate it? We don’t have kids now but we plan to one day, and this is where we’d raise them.
PS. Yes … I did ask about engineering inspections earlier.
PPS. We’re probably retaining our trusty attorney today so we’ll ask him, too. Promise.
