Environmental Issues

When purchasing a piece of property, it is important to be aware of any environmental liabilities associated with it. For example, you should find out if there are any registered underground tanks within several miles of the property, known contaminated properties in the neighborhood, or property owners who have been fined by the government for failing to meet environmental safety standards.

Before, it took a costly site investigation to acquire this type of information, but now there are online environmental databases available at a fraction of the cost. Anyone can access reports on otherwise hard to detect environmental issues. With these databases, it is possible to obtain a list of hazards near a property, or spills and violations attributed to businesses nearby.

Some reputable databases include VISTA Information Systems, located in San Diego, California, which allows you to register and search the data bank for free, and E Data Resources, which is located in Southport, Connecticut. These services are all relatively inexpensive, but can provide you with priceless information that is useful before you make a purchase.

Testimonials

I just wanted to thank you for the professionalism which you exhibited during the purchase of our home. I cannot think of any other real estate agents that would leave their homes on New Year's Day in order to show us a house. There are always items that you are worried about and concerned about during the purchase and sale of homes. However, we always felt confident that you would come through and do what you said you could do.I am pleased to say that I not only consider you now to be our real estate agent, but also a friend, and am proud to call you such. Dr. William Lile and Mrs. Lesley Lile
