property transactions

July 22, 2015

At SCS Engineers, we often receive calls requesting environmental due diligence prior to a property purchase. Due diligence includes anything from a desktop survey of publicly-available websites to a transaction screen, to a full Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment, to Phase 2 activity such as collecting soil and groundwater samples for analysis.

You may be completely unaware of the property’s contamination, or in some cases contamination is known to be present on a property. In either instance, SCS Engineers can recommend a tailored review of the existing environmental records, and we’ll work with you and your advisers to structure a deal that protects you from the liability for contamination. The result will protect you during the redevelopment of the property or when selling the property in the future.
