N.J.A.C. 5:28A Lead-Based Paint Inspections in Rental Dwelling Units 

The Town of Phillipsburg has partnered with LEW Environmental Services to ensure compliance with New Jersey’s Lead Safe Certification law. Town records indicate one of your rental properties might be impacted by this new law.

The new law states that certain rental units in Phillipsburg built before 1978 are required to have a dust wipe sample analysis to assess for lead hazards completed at the next tenant turnover, or by July 2024.

Depending on the results of the dust wipe sample analysis, a lead safe certification will be issued which is proof of compliance with the regulation. The Lead-Safe Certification will be valid for a two-year period. If a tenant turnover occurs after the expiration of the certificate, another inspection is required. If there is no tenant turnover, then another inspection is required one year after the certificate expires (three years after the initial inspection).

After scheduling your inspection, please refer to the landlord registration section below.
