Cost of Visual Lead Inspection
2 bedrooms or fewer$125
3 bedrooms$150
4 bedrooms$175
5 or more bedrooms$200
Re-inspection of any size/type of property$100

*An additional fee of twenty dollars ($20.00) shall be assessed in accordance with N.J.S.A. 52:27D-437.10 and N.J.A.C. 5:28A-2.2(b), to be deposited into the Lead Hazard Control Assistance Act Fund under the administration of the New Jersey State Department of Community Affairs.
