Property buyers: Don’t let the past come back to haunt you

Before the advent of sweeping federal and state environmental regulations, many companies improperly disposed of a wide range of hazardous materials, contaminating soil and ground or surface water. If you’re contemplating buying a site, be sure to first have an environmental site assessment performed to evaluate the environmental condition of the property. If contamination is found, a site assessment can help determine the extent and the cost of any needed remediation. Having this information before you buy can help save you money and make a more informed decision. To learn more, contact BEI at 908.918.1702 or click here.
