To All Residential Rental Property Owners:

On July 22, 2021 the Governor signed into law the Lead Based Inspection Act which requires all single one and two family Residential and multi-family dwelling rental units built before 1978 to be inspected for the presence of lead-based paint hazards, unless exempted.  The law requires that all these type rental units must be inspected within two (2) years of the effective date of the law of July 22, 2022.  This means that the first inspection must take place no later than July 22, 2024.

While each individual owner/landlord is free to choose his or her own certified Contractor to perform the inspection, the Atlantic County Improvement Authority (ACIA) will perform this inspection on behalf of Mullica Township.  You only need to complete the attached form and mail it to the ACIA with payment at the following mailing address:

Atlantic County Improvement Authority
600 Aviation Research Boulevard
Egg Harbor Township, NJ 08234

The ACIA will contact you with an appointment date and time.  Price list for these services are included in the Inspection Request Form below.  Please note that Mullica Township is a Visual Inspection only town.

(Please check with the ACIA if it’s doing Visual and Dust Wipe).

Please be advised that within ninety (90) days from the receipt of this Notice you must either provide Notice to the Township that you are completing the Visual Inspection yourself or that you have submitted a request for a Lead-Based Paint Inspection from the ACIA.  Attached  is the Mullica Township Lead Based Paint Inspection Ordinance.

For additional information on Lead-Based Paint Abatement see attached statement from the ACIA.
