Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to help if I can. Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct any necessary research, and type a response. Thank you.
The law states in part:
(3) Civil liability
Any person who knowingly violates the provisions of this section shall be jointly and severally liable to the purchaser or lessee in an amount equal to 3 times the amount of damages incurred by such individual.
42 U.S.C.A. § 4852d (West).
Accordingly, you can sue the sellers (and likely their broker) for 3 times the amount of damages that you suffered as a result of lead paint, such as health costs, lead paint removal, etc. My suggestion is to contact a local attorney who can make a demand upon the sellers and their broker.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
