Methamphetamine (Meth) laboratories have become a prevalent problem throughout Colorado and the United States. Colorado real estate disclosure statutes allow buyers of residential real estate to test a property to determine if the property is meth-affected. Meth-affected properties are those which were used for manufacturing, processing, cooking or using of meth. Colorado regulation 6 CCR 1014-3 dictates the requirements for testing and cleaning-up meth-affected properties. Only companies and individuals certified by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) are authorized to conduct Screening Level Assessments for real estate transactions. In addition, licensed companies and individuals are authorized to conduct Preliminary Assessments and Clearance Assessments of properties.
The following link to the CDPHE websites provides access to the Colorado statutes and resources to help explain the process of discovering meth-affected properties and decontaminating the properties.
