Lead Inspections

Lead-Based Paint Inspections

Having your property inspected for lead-based paint is one of the most important things you can do as a Maryland landlord. Without this inspection you could face fines and/or possible jail time. The right time to get your property inspected for lead-based paint is NOW! Every time your tenant changes over you need a new lead inspection.*
Even if you didn't have your lead inspection done prior to your tenants moving in, you should still get your lead inspection done!

All dust wipe samples are analysed by a national laboratory located right in Baltimore, so there is no wait time with mailing samples to a lab in a different state.

Shepherd Inspection does only FULL RISK REDUCTION inspection (no Modified Risk Reduction inspections).
