March 26, 2012 - PRLog -- Mid-America Association of Real Estate Investors is hosting Tom Brick, representative of the US Environmental Protection Agency to discuss required record keeping for their April 2012 Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule.  If you are a contractor, landlord, property manager, or home flipper you need to be in compliance with the EPA’s RRP Rule.  Please Join us.

The EPA’s RRP Rule
Beginning April 22, 2010, federal law requires that contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb more than six square feet of paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and trained to follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.  This rule affects contractors, landlords, property managers, and home flippers who work in residential properties built before 1978 and requires classes, certification, safe work practices and record keeping.

Why now
While most people who are affected have some knowledge of what is to be done.  Many have taken steps to take the required classes and get certified.  Yet there is still mis-information being shared that landlords, property managers, and home flippers are not affected, that it is all on the contractor doing the work.  And no one really seems to know the required documentation that needs to be kept.  And failure to follow the right safe work practices and document it properly can result in fines in excess of $30,000 per occurance.

April Event
To help educate the general public as well as our members, Mid-America Association of Real Estate Investors has invited EPA representative Tom Brick to our April 10th, monthly meeting to give us a brief history of Lead Issues, the RRP Rule and to cover who needs to be taking active steps and exactly how to document those steps.  All MAREI members are encouraged to bring a guest – free of charge to learn more.  If you do not know a MAREI member and want to attend, please visit go to to request a free pass.

What Others are Saying
“After attending an RRP training class, we were under the impression as house flippers that the documentation was a requirement of the contractor, not the home owner.  After being audited by Tom Brick, we were informed otherwise.!”  —Kim Tucker, home flipper
