You are required by Illinois State to provide a Radon report if one exists to all parties involved. You must provide a Radon Disclosure regardless if a Report exists or not. This is in fairness and protection of the buyers, sellers or tenants. If a test has been previously done for the property, these documents must be attached to the Radon Disclosure. Requirement for this disclosure applies to any property up to the Third, (3rd) floor. All buyers, sellers, and tenants will have the information or will have an option to perform a certified inspection for Radon Gas. A copy of this Pamphlet is attached for your viewing.

The law changed in 2012 your info is incorrect. Radon disclosures are not required by law unless the unit has been tested. http://www.iema.illinois.gov/HomePage_Content/PressRelease12_29_2011_RadonTennants.pdf

Radon gas comes up from the earth, so it is only required on homes or condos 3rd floor and below.

You have to provide the disclosure for anything on the 3rd floor and under.

Illinois state law requires Radon disclosures be provided for any property up to the 3rd floor.

It is a state law. All sellers need to fill it out although in most of the city owners rarely ever do a Radon test, but it lets the bueyrs understand that they have the option to do one.

Owners should disclose any material facts which affect the subject property; however, if this is a concern, you should hire your own inspector.
