Title X
The name of a federal law ("Title Ten," the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act) passed in 1992, aimed at helping residential landlords evaluate the risk of lead poisoning in each housing situation. Among other things, Title X requires landlords to disclose the presence of known lead paint hazards to prospective and current tenants, to give them an informational booklet, and to warn again if renovations will disturb lead paint. Home sellers must also disclose known hazards. (See also: lead hazard)
