On September 5, 2008, the State of New York enacted amendments to the Environmental Conservation Law, which will require property owners to disclose to residential and commercial tenants and occupants certain test results that reveal indoor air contamination. More specifically, as of December 4, 2008, tenants and occupants must be notified if test results collected under a consent order or brownfield cleanup agreement with the Department of Environmental Conservation reveal that contamination of indoor air quality has exceeded the guidelines of the NY State Department of Health or the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. These guidelines establish maximum exposure limits for a variety of chemicals, including certain volatile organic compounds. Property owners must disclose the test results to the tenants and occupants within 15 days of receiving the results. In addition, property owners will be required to notify prospective tenants of circumstances in which certain programs or controls are in place at the property to monitor or mitigate indoor air quality.
