            1.        Disclose known lead-base paint hazards to all potential tenants prior to the execution of a                        lease and attach a disclosure form to the lease.

            2.        The owner must provide all prospective families with a copy of “ Protect Your Family From                        Lead In Your Home” pamphlet or an EPA approved alternative.                      

            3.        Perform paint stabilization using safe work practices according to EPA & HUD guidelines.
