As far as a higher rate already, that really is a case by case basis, sometimes yes sometimes no. It depends on mayn different things like the company, the area, the condition of the home, and updates done to the home.
The reason insurance companies care about lead paint is that it is a liability exposure for them and also could increase the repair costs if there was a physical damage claim.
