Since the late 1970s, lead-based paint has been banned by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for painting homes and buildings, with acceptable levels containing only .06% or less. This is because lead paint is very dangerous, particularly for children. Unfortunately, some older buildings and homes still contain lead paint. When a property owner fails to correct the lead-based paint issues in their building or to advise occupants of the hazard, they may bear legal liability for any harm that people suffer as a result.
