Real Estate and Environmental Alert: New York Landlords Now Required to Notify Tenants of Indoor Air Quality, Groundwater and Soil Test Results


Concern about indoor air contamination has resulted in recent legislative action upping the ante for residential and commercial property owners in New York State. A new law requires owners (including their managing agents or other representatives) to notify tenants within 15 days of receiving any test results that indicate there could be an indoor air issue. If a property owner already possesses such test results, even if a property has reached regulatory closure, the landlord may be required to notify tenants on December 3, 2008, the date the new law takes effect.
