California State Legislature : Protect CA Home Values
The trial lawyers are at it again. They’ve used their money and political influence to push a lawsuit that has resulted in millions of homes in California being “red tagged” as public nuisances.
Will you SIGN our petition on StandUnited that calls on the legislature to fix this disastrous ruling?
The court found that pre-1981 homes with old lead paint are a public nuisance until inspected and, if necessary, fixed to comply with the court’s order. For homes built before 1981, this decision will likely decrease property values, could make homes more difficult to sell, and will saddle homeowners with unnecessary and intrusive government inspections.
Friend, our homes are not a nuisance.
Join us in calling on the California legislature to stop these far-reaching consequences.
With this ruling, homeowners will face a new, hefty burden:
• Financial liabilities for lead paint cleanup
• Mandatory government inspections
• Decreased property values
• Unfunded mandates
• Decreased local resources & services
• Forced public disclosures
With your voice, we can call on the legislature to remedy this ruling. Will you sign our petition and help millions of homeowners and families across our state? Our legislators need to know our homes are not a nuisance.
To California State Legislature:
Our state’s leaders must act to protect Californians from the recent court ruling on lead paint that “red tagged” 4.7 million California homes as public nuisances. I am concerned about how this court ruling will impact my property value, my family and my community.
Unlike in other areas of the country, for many Californians, our financial savings are completely locked up in our homes. You have to work hard to buy a home in our state, and you have to continue to work hard to maintain it. Responsible homeowners do not present a threat to the public health of my community – this court ruling does. It is not fair to leave responsible, hardworking California homeowners to face the consequences of this court decision, especially considering they were never informed of the lawsuit or permitted to participate in it.
The trial lawyers who brought this lawsuit to our community clearly did not have our best interest in mind – that is what we elected you to do. While the trial lawyers are pushing for a payday, I need you to stand up and protect our home values and privacy rights. I am writing to ask you to protect your constituents’ investments in their homes by overturning the court ruling on lead paint so that our homes are no longer public nuisances.
