Tenant Information
• Multiple rental dwellings that have been registered with the department of community affairs for at least 10 years and have no outstanding lead violations from the most recent cyclical inspection performed on multiple dwelling under the "Hotel and Multiple Dwelling Law" (N.J.S.A. 55:13A-1). Cyclical inspections currently occuer every 5 years in Multiple Dwellings.
o This means that all Multiple dwellings constructed prior to 1978 and registered with the Department for at least 10 years that have a certificate of inspection issued by the Department of Community Affairs, Bureau of Housing Inspection are exempt from this requirement. A certificate of inspection means there are no outstanding violations.
o A Multiple Dwelling that has been registered with the Department for at least 10 years with an open inspection that has no violations for paint is also exempt from this requirement
Open inspections mean that inspections are ongoing to remediate violations during a cyclical inspection. This is because during cyclical inspections the department cites paint violations which includes flaking, loose, or peeling paint on any interior surfaces rather than lead violations. To ensure periodic lead-based paint inspections occur where needed, any open paint violations in a dwelling unit must be inspected pursuant to P.L.2021, c.182.
If the building was constructed prior to 1978, a certificate of inspection must be attached.
