Ann, Home Seller in Belmont, MA

Do I need to delead a 2-family before selling? Never been tested so I assume it's there.

Ann:

there is no mandated requirement for lead inspection or removal on the sale of 1 to 4 unit properties.
just disclosure what you know and then it is up to the buyer to decide whether they want property to be inspected.
you are right, most older homes probably do contain some lead paint.
if you are aware of any prior lead testing, you must provide a buyer copy of same.
