An Act Relating to Radon Testing and Disclosure to Tenants
Sec. 1. 14 MRSA §6030-D, as amended by PL 2011, c. 96, §3 and c. 157, §1, is repealed.
Sec. 2. 14 MRSA §6030-F is enacted to read:
§ 6030-F. Disclosure of radon hazard to current and prospective tenants
This bill repeals the current provisions in law related to mandatory radon testing and disclosure of the presence of radon to tenants and prospective tenants in residential buildings and enacts provisions related to disclosure of a radon hazard to tenants and prospective tenants based on Illinois law. The bill provides that radon testing is not required, but requires the disclosure of a radon hazard to tenants and prospective tenants when a landlord is made aware of test results indicating the presence of a radon hazard and mitigation has not been performed to reduce the level of radon. The bill applies to dwelling units located below the 3rd story above ground level in a residential building.
