Is MAR’s Maryland Lead Poisoning Prevention Program Disclosure Form required on the sale of homes built pre 1979 even if they have never been rentals?

Under the Maryland Lead Poisoning Prevention Program, any leased residential dwelling constructed prior to 1978 is required to be registered with the Maryland Department of the Environment. MAR’s Maryland Lead Poisoning Prevention Program Disclosure form is not required by law. However, we advise that it be included among the disclosures in transactions involving properties constructed prior to 1978 to alert buyers acquiring property of requirements of the Maryland Lead Poisoning Prevention Program should the property become a rental property in the future.  For additional information concerning the requirements under the Maryland Lead Poisoning Prevention Program, you may click here.
