(410 ILCS 45/9.1)
(from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 1309.1)
Owner's obligation to give notice.
An owner of a
dwelling unit or residential building who has received a mitigation notice
under Section 9 of this Act shall, before entering into a lease
agreement for the dwelling unit for which the
mitigation notice was issued, provide prospective lessees of that
unit with written notice that a lead hazard has previously been
identified in the dwelling unit, unless the owner has obtained a
certificate of compliance for the unit under Section 9. An owner
may satisfy this notice requirement by providing the prospective
lessee with a copy of the inspection report prepared pursuant to Section 9.
Before entering into a residential lease agreement, all owners
of residential buildings or dwelling units built before 1978
shall give prospective lessees information on the potential
health hazards posed by lead in residential dwellings by providing the
prospective lessee with a copy of an informational brochure prepared by the
Department. Within one year of the effective date of this amendatory Act of
1992, owners of residential buildings or dwelling units built before 1978 shall
provide current lessees with such brochure.
