Don’t know if this is the right sub-forum for this, but here goes:
I’m planning to move out of my house in Detroit soon and rent it out. I’ve found it is necessary to get a lead clearance, and I want to do a pre-emptive strike.
Any of you do or are personally familiar with lead clearance inspections in Detroit?
I’m looking for info on how I can make sure it sails through so I can get out from under this 16 ton weight and not have to sell it on ridiculously soft land contract terms.
I was planning on doing the sort of testing that will be done myself and seeing if the house is good, then order the “official” inspection once I know it’s good to go. The house has been extensively redone relatively recently (as compared to its 1920s date of construction), with the rear 1/3 being a complete more recent addition, but I don’t know how recently.
I know there are approved encapsulants I could use, should too high a lead level turn up. How might pre-emptive use of one of these encapsulants affect the inspection results?
Any info would be much appreciated. Might get you a job as well.
