Illinois Radon Awareness Act - Jan 1, 2008
The Illinois Radon Awareness Act goes into effect January 1, 2008. It requires that radon hazard information and a recommendation to test every home for radon must be provided to any potential buyer of residential real estate prior to the acceptance of any offer.

Three forms will be involved in this transaction:
1) A disclosure acknowledging the transfer of the required information from the Seller to the Buyer. This page also requires that any information regarding elevated radon levels inteh home, including prior test results be provided to the buyer.
2) Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) Form "Radon Testing Guidelines for Real Estate Transactions" describing protocols.
3) New IEMA Form/Brochure "Disclosure of Information on Radon Hazards".

The Act DOES NOT require Sellers to test their home prior to sale!

Radon is a known Class A human carcinogen causing lung cancer. Radon kills approximately 20,000 Americans each year and 46% of Illinois homes tested have scores above the "Action Level" of 4.0 pCi/l.

Radon enters the home from the underside of the footprint. When air is vented from a building by a natural or powered ventilation, Radon is drawn from the surrounding soil through openings between the house and the soil.

Radon testing should be performed by a licensed Radon Management Professional or Technician and Radon Mitigation should be performed by a licensed Mitigation Professional or Technician.
