Due Diligence – Commercial / Industrial Properties
Certified Environmental has decades of combined experience in underground and above ground tank removals, soil and groundwater remediation, tank testing/certification, and underground tank property scanning.
Certified Environmental offers free consultations to anybody including property owners, attorneys, developers, and property investors.
If you are purchasing or refinancing a property, especially commercial property, you must perform basic due diligence inspections including a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment to determine any potential environmental liabilities associated with the property. We will review all public records associated with the property back to the time it was initially developed to determine all uses of the property that may be of concern since initial development.
Know what you are buying, allow us to provide you with a comprehensive Phase I report to assist in your negotiations and allow you to make an informed decision on your purchase.
Our Phase I investigation/report complies with ASTM E1527-13. We perform Phase I investigations in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
Certified Environmental will advance borings around your tank and screen the soil with a photo-ionization detector to provide immediate knowledge of a tank’s integrity. Soil samples will also be collected from beneath the tank and taken to a NJDEP licensed laboratory to quantify the amount of contamination in the soil. If no contamination is present, the laboratory will document that the soil is “clean”. Certified Environmental will present you with a report of findings based on the field screening and laboratory results.
