What if the home has evidence of lead-based paint?

The seller will need to be willing to have a lead-based paint conducted before we will assist the homebuyer with the purchase of the home. In the event that paint test positive for lead, the seller will have to agree to have the lead paint treated by a licensed lead-contractor. Depending on the severity and location of the lead paint, this can be expensive and the seller may not want to do this. In the case that the seller does not want to correct the lead paint issues we will not assist the homebuyer in the purchase of that home.
