1. a. The commissioner shall inspect every single-family and two-family rental dwelling in accordance with the "Hotel and Multiple Dwelling Law," P.L.1967, c.76 (C.55:13A-1 et seq.), at least once every five years for lead-based paint hazards and shall charge a fee sufficient to cover the cost of such inspection; provided, however, that the fee shall not exceed one-third of the inspection fee for a three-unit multiple dwelling, established pursuant to the "Hotel and Multiple Dwelling Law," P.L.1967, c.76 (C.55:13A-1 et seq.), for each unit inspected.

b.Notwithstanding any other provisions of P.L.2007, c.251 (C.55:13A-12.2 et al.) to the contrary, a dwelling unit in a single-family or two-family dwelling shall not be subject to inspection and evaluation for the presence of lead-based paint hazards, or for the fees for such inspection or evaluation, if the unit:

(1)has been certified to be free of lead-based paint;

(2)was constructed during or after 1978;

(3)is a seasonal rental unit which is rented for less than six months' duration each year; or

(4)has been certified as having a lead-free interior by a certified inspector.

c.The commissioner shall have the power to enforce the corrections of any violations found pursuant to a lead-based paint hazard inspection conducted pursuant to this section as if the rental unit were in a multiple dwelling subject to the requirements of the "Hotel and Multiple Dwelling Law," P.L.1967, c.76 (C.55:13A-1 et seq.).
