Minneapolis Lead Safe Housing Registry

The City of Minneapolis’ Lead Safe Housing Registry is a listing to provide information to the rental community of housing units that have been made safe from lead-based paint hazards. Lead-based paint is primarily found on homes and apartments built before 1978. The older the building, the more likely it is to have lead-based paint.

The following units were determined to be lead-safe following their participation in the Minneapolis lead grants funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control.

What does “Lead Safe” mean?

It does not mean that the property or unit is lead free. There is a

high likelihood that lead paint remains on the property. What it does mean is that on the date shown indicated next to the address, the lead paint was intact and not considered a hazard to children. In addition, there were no lead dust hazards in the windows or on floors and there was no bare soil. It is important to note that the condition of the property can change with time. If you see chipping or peeling paint, excessive dust or paint chips in windows and bare soil it could mean that the lead hazards have returned.

Working with Lead Paint Safely

On-going lead safety requires the owner to safely maintain paint coatings and soil covering and to use lead-safe work practices in maintaining or repairing the unit. Prospective renters or buyers should check with the owner to see if these practices have been followed. For more information on protecting your family from lead hazards see

Lead Disclosure Law

In addition, the property owner is required to disclose knowledge of lead paint, lead testing results to you as the renter at the time of lease. This means that they must give you a copy of any reports pertaining to lead paint, hazards or testing. You can use this report to identify where lead paint remains on the property. Contact your landlord immediately if you see chipping or peeling of paint on the surfaces which are listed to contain lead paint so that they may repair the hazard. If they do not repair the paint in a reasonable time, call Minneapolis 311 to file a housing complaint.
