Should I Get My Old House Tested For Lead?

Should I Get My Old House Tested For Lead?

Q: I am looking at buying my first condo and, though I like older buildings, I am concerned about the risk of lead paint that is likely present. Has anyone ever gotten a condo/house tested for lead before buying? Or have you ever used a lead risk professional before remodeling?
