Real Estate and Radon

What to know about Real Estate and Radon Testing.

Real Estate and Radon Testing - recommendations and guidelines from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are as follows:

- Do test for radon regardless of whether you are buying or selling a home.

- If you’re buying a new home, have a discussion with your homebuilder – specifically asking about what (if any) radon-resistant features were used in the construction of the home.

- Ask if the new home has been tested for radon, and

- Ask for a copy of the report.

- For resale and new home purchases: have a mitigation system installed for any property where radon levels test at 4 pCi/L or higher.

Radon and Buying a Home:

Homebuyers need to make sure that the property they are looking to buy is free of elevated radon levels. Whether you're looking at buying '50's Ranch' in Prairie Village, a 'Side-to-Side-Split' in Olathe, a Mansion, a 'McMansion' or a Frank Lloyd Wright home - you'll need to know that you and your family are protected.

Radon and Selling a Home:

As a seller, it is important to not only present your home for sale in the clearest and most attractive light - but to remove question marks that a buyer may have about your home. Providing information to potential buyers may result in a quicker sale and may reduce your potential liability.
