Maryland's Lead Laws
for Rental Properties

About Maryland's Lead Laws

Maryland’s Reduction of Lead Risk in Housing law requires owners of rental properties built before 1978 to register their units with Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE), distribute specific educational materials, and meet specific lead paint risk reduction standards at certain triggering events. 

Fox Mountain Property Inspections can help landlords comply with Maryland’s specific laws for required testing.  We can also help you obtain a lead-free certificate which can free you from the burden of future testing.

Landlords Required to get lead testing for properties

Lead-Free Certification

For landlords and investment property owners seeking additional documentation, we offer lead certificates as an optional service. These certificates serve as official documentation of compliance with lead safety standards and can be obtained for an additional fee. 

Risk Reduction for Pre-1978 Properties: For rental properties constructed before 1978, comprehensive lead paint testing is crucial. Maryland law requires landlords to provide tenants with specific information about lead hazards in these older properties. We assist property owners in meeting these obligations through our accurate testing services.  

Periodic Inspections: Maryland’s lead laws also require periodic inspections for certain rental properties. Our team can help you stay compliant with these regulations, ensuring the ongoing safety of your tenants.  

At Fox Mountain Property Inspections, we understand the unique needs of Maryland landlords, and we include lead-free certification as part of our standard service for properties in the state. Contact us today for expert lead paint testing services tailored to your specific requirements.

The operations manager and owner made personal efforts to ensure we could have the inspection in time to make an informed offer. Richard was knowledgeable and pleasant. It’s nice to see someone who is not only great at their job, but seems to truly enjoy it. Dan (operations) said we’d like him, and he was right!I want to add that this is our second time using the professionals at Fox for an inspection in this challenging home buying market. Both times we left feeling confident we got the information we needed (and more) in order to make an informed decision. They are great- call them!

Keith was awesome. Super helpful and professional. He answered all of my questions and helped me to really understand what was going on with the house. He encouraged me to be educated in the home we were in the process of purchasing, even pointing out areas we'd need to know about for later (water shut offs, etc.). I can't day enough about his friendly and professional demeanor. Thank you, Keith! You rock!

We bought our first home and called Fox Mountain Property Inspections to inspect the house. They fit us into their schedule within 4 days of calling and were early to the appointment. Incredibly knowledgeable and very thorough inspection. Richard even took the time to explain the inner workings of all the mechanical so we knew what to expect. It was a fantastic experience and you should absolutely call them for all your home inspection needs.
