Phase 1 Inspections

Our Phase 1 Environmental reports are essential for various real estate and business transactions, including land and building purchases, leases, business acquisitions, new residential developments, and bank loans. Lenders often require this type of Phase 1 Environmental report, making it highly recommended before purchasing commercial or industrial real estate or embarking on new residential developments.

It’s crucial to conduct a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) whenever you’re purchasing commercial or industrial property, including undeveloped or vacant land. If you’re buying a property near commercial areas or certain businesses like service stations or dry cleaners, a Phase 1 ESA is strongly advised before finalizing the purchase.

The primary goal of a Phase 1 Environmental report is to ensure you understand the true value of the property and to identify any soil or groundwater contamination from prior use or neighboring sites. This information helps assess the property’s value and prevents potential limitations or liabilities due to regulatory cleanup requirements or civil issues like human health exposure or devaluation of neighboring properties.
