Changes may be on the way for radon disclosures

Radon is a colorless, odorless, naturally occurring radioactive gas that can accumulate within buildings.  The Illinois Radon Awareness Act was enacted in 2008 to require certain disclosures about the existence of radon gas from real estate sellers.  Currently, the law does not apply to landlord tenant situations.  An amendment known as House Bill 141 to the law has passed both houses of the Illinois legislature and is awaiting the Governor’s signature to be made law.  If signed, the amendment will go into effect on January 1, 2012.
