Colorado Breathes Easier: New Laws Protect Residents from Radon Gas

Colorado Takes Action Against Hidden Home Threat

Radon, a colorless, odorless gas seeping from the soil, poses a significant health risk to Colorado residents. This leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers demands proactive measures. To safeguard public health and empower homeowners, Colorado has enacted crucial legislation around radon mitigation. At Colorado Radon Mitigation, we remain at the forefront of these changes, ensuring our services comply with the latest regulations and prioritize your family’s well-being.

Senate Bill 23-206: Transparency and Informed Decisions

Signed into law in June 2023, Senate Bill 23-206 focuses on increased awareness and transparency regarding radon in real estate transactions. While it doesn’t mandate testing, it requires:

  • Disclosure by Sellers and Landlords: Landlords and home sellers must provide written notifications about radon risks to potential tenants and buyers. This includes a current brochure from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) explaining radon dangers and mitigation options.
  • Transparency in Existing Test Results: If a seller has knowledge of prior radon testing or mitigation systems installed in the property, they must disclose this information to the buyer.
  • Lease Agreement Updates: Landlords are responsible for amending their lease agreements to include the required disclosure language regarding radon risks.

Empowering Homeowners: Knowledge is Power

Senate Bill 23-206 empowers Coloradans to make informed decisions about their health and safety. Here’s what this means for you:

  • Right to Know: As a potential tenant or buyer, you have the right to be informed about the presence of radon mitigation systems or past test results in the property.
  • Taking Action: If the disclosure raises concerns, you can request a radon test before finalizing the lease or purchase agreement. The EPA recommends testing your home for radon every five years.
  • Negotiation Power: Knowledge of high radon levels may influence negotiations on mitigation or further testing.
