Lead Inspection Requirements for Rental Properties

 Effective April, 1, 2023 by mandate of the State of NJ, pursuant to P.L.2021, c.182, the Township is charged with recording and insuring that rental units built prior to 1978 have a valid lead safe certificate. 

In order to apply for or maintain a rental certificate of occupancy, all applicable rental units must have a valid lead safe certificate.

Here in Toms River, the initial visual inspection can be performed by a contractor certified by the state of NJ for lead testing. If you’d prefer,  the Township staff can perform the inspection at an additional cost.
