RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES RADON WARNING STATEMENT The Minnesota Department of Health strongly recommends that ALL homebuyers have an indoor radon test performed prior to purchase or taking occupancy and recommends having the radon levels mitigated if elevated radon concentrations are found. Elevated radon concentrations can easily be reduced by a qualified, certified, or licensed, if applicable, radon mitigator. Every buyer of an interest in residential real property is notified that the property may present exposure to dangerous levels of indoor radon gas that may place the occupants at risk of developing radon-induced lung cancer. Radon, a Class A human carcinogen, is the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers and the second leading cause overall. The seller of any interest in residential property is required to provide the buyer with any information on radon test results of the dwelling. Freeborn County is not aware of any radon testing conducted on residential properties listed in this tax-forfeited land for public sale list. Freeborn County is not aware of radon records, concentration levels or if a radon mitigation system is in place on any of the previously listed parcels for sale.
