§ 25607.34. Residential Rental Property Exposure Warnings - Methods of Transmission.
(a) For purposes of this section, “residential rental property”, hereafter also referred to as “property”, includes an apartment, house, duplex, triplex, condominium or other dwelling that a landlord rents to a tenant to live in, including common areas, but does not include a “hotel” as defined in Section 25607.32 of this subarticle.
(b) A warning for exposures to listed chemicals at a residential rental property meets the requirements of this subarticle if it complies with the content requirements in Section 25607.35, and is provided to each known adult occupant of the property at the time of renting, leasing, or hiring out the property, and each year thereafter. Warnings provided pursuant to this section may be in hardcopy or electronic format, using one or more of the following methods:
(1) In a letter delivered to the property and addressed to each known adult occupant, and to “Tenants and Occupants” if the names of all adult occupants are not known; or
(2) In an electronic message sent to each email address otherwise used to communicate information to the known adult occupants and to other tenants and occupants; or
(3) In the lease or rental agreement, but, in that event, the requirements of this subarticle are met only as to those adult occupants who sign or are named in the lease or rental agreement. The warning may be provided to other known occupants using one or more of the methods in subsections (b)(1) or (b)(2).
(4) In any year after the initial year of renting, leasing, letting, or hiring out the property, the warning may be provided using one or more of the methods in subsections (b)(1) or (b)(2), or in the renewed lease or rental agreement in any year in which the lease or rental agreement is being renewed, but, in that event, the warning will only cover those adult occupants who sign or are named in the renewed lease or rental agreement and only for the year in which the lease or rental agreement is being renewed.
(c) If the lease, rental agreement, renewal, or amendment for the property or any other disclosures or required notices from the landlord to the tenant are provided to the occupants in any language other than English, the warning must be provided in that or those languages.
(d) In addition to the warning specified in this section, residential rental properties must also provide warnings for enclosed parking facilities pursuant to Sections 25607.20, and 25607.21, and designated smoking areas pursuant to Sections 25607.28 and 25607.29, where exposures to listed chemicals from any enclosed parking facilities and designated smoking areas can occur on the property.
