Crep survey

The list of mandatory surveys just got longer.

Now, as of 12 August 2008:

  • All sellers must provide a report on the risk of exposure to lead poisoning (CREP) for all the common areas of a residential property built before 1st January 1949
  • All owner-landlords must attach the report on the risk of exposure to lead poisoning (CREP) to the rental agreement on signature of the lease or its renewal

The report on the risk of exposure to lead poisoning deals with the visible and accessible areas of the home. It provides information on possible lead concentrations in paints. It is valid for 6 years. If the first survey is negative, it is permanently valid.

Until 1950, paints had very high lead content. Because they were proven harmful to health (lead poisoning), they were prohibited shortly afterwards.
