Thousands of Residents Illegally Exposed to Lead Paint
Failure to Warn Residents Between 2003 and 2006A large Massachusetts-based real estate corporation and nearly two dozen associated entities may be subject to a multi-million dollar penalty for repeatedly violating federal lead paint disclosure laws at properties they own or rent in eleven communities in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
An EPA complaint cites The Community Builders, Inc. (TCB) and 23 associated property owners for more than 800 violations of the federal Lead Disclosure Rule when they failed to disclose information about lead paint to people who leased apartments between 2003 and 2006. TCB, based in Boston, develops, finances, and operates mixed-income housing, and manages over 90 developments containing about 8,750 housing units in numerous cities in the eastern half of the U.S.
