The Value of Phase One Environmental Site Assessments

Lender rates are relatively low at the moment which makes it a great time to invest.  Thus as a savvy investor purchasing a piece of land, you know that is pays to make calculated risk and reduce your liability.   Maybe the landowner adjacent to the property for sale had old tanks leaking into the ground for the last twenty years without their knowledge.  Remediation costs are expensive.  A Phase One Environmental Site Assessment (Phase 1 ESA) will buy you peace of mind.

A Phase 1 ESA will identify any potential or real environmental sources of contamination on the subject property.  This includes a non-intrusive full report on historial and current contamination of the property and adjacent properties. 

Our Phase 1 ESA reports will include: 

>A physical site inspection

>A review of aerial photos

>A compilation of searches for wells, petroleum tanks, waste management and fire insurance maps

>Historical photos and permits

>Interviews with owners/occupants
