Asked by John, Walpole, MA • Tue Apr 22, 2008
I am a first time homebuyer looking at a property built prior to 1978. The house is well maintained with new windows and no visible paint chipping. As with many of the older properties, the lead paint disclosure lists â€œunknown.â€ From my research it appears that there are two options for a lead paint inspection. One inspection checks the entire property for lead while the other is more of a spot check. Should I have the full inspection done and then have the house deleaded if needed? We plan on starting a family very soon so I am not sure a spot check is good enough. Mass.gov shows that lead paint was found on a number of other homes on the street.
