The Renovation Repair Paint Rule (RRP Rule) that applies to contractors and renovators also applies to Realtors and Property Management Companies.  This means that Realtors and Property Management Companies (that perform their own renovations, repair, or painting) are required to follow Lead Safe Work Practices when working on projects for pre-1978 construction.  LSWP are costly and result in projects taking more time and money to complete.  Anyone working on pre-1978 construction that has not had the property certified to be free of Lead Based Paint is required to be certified in LSWP/RRP practices.  Realtors and Property Management Companies failing to use LSWP while performing work on pre-1978 construction could potentially be fined up to $5,000 per infraction, if the property has not had a certified LBP Inspection.

Some examples of LSWP/RRP include: constructing containment around a house and yard where work is being performed, workers wearing respirators and gloves, and the use of industrial vacuums with hepa-vac filters. These practices can make a job that should have taken one day, take three days instead.
