Environmental Site Assessment
There’s no surprise worse than discovering the property you just purchased is contaminated with some sort of hazardous waste. Conducting a Phase I site assessment can help warn you of unpleasant and very costly problems before you purchase commercial real estate. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources has identified about 1,900 hazardous sites, 700 old landfills, and 40,000 storage tank incident sites, and estimates 1,500 contaminated dry cleaning sites. CERCLA is only one of many state and federal laws imposing obligations on owners of contaminated properties. If you’re considering purchasing or selling a property that could be contaminated. an Environmental Site Assessment will help both you and the lender or anyone else that must meet “All Appropriate Inquiry” requirements.
The Environmental Site Assessment is generally considered the first step in the process of environmental due diligence. Environmental Site Assessments are typically ordered on all commercials and industrial properties and some agricultural properties containing chemical storage, mixing equipment, parking areas or buildings. They are typically ordered whether it's a new loan or a refinance.
The Environmental Site Assessment involves a review of records, an onsite inspection, and interviews with owners, occupants,neighbors and local government officials. The onsite inspector will be acting as the "eyes and ears" for the Environmental Engineer. Detailed photos will be taken documenting any hazardous conditions seen on the property.
This onsite inspection is to determine the overall condition of the property. Close observation is need if there are any building components (paving, roof, windows, landscaping, deferred maintenance, etc.) or building systems (HVAC, plumbing, lighting, high-cost systems, etc.) that will need to be replaced in the next few years. Close observations are needed with a rating noted on the inspection sheet. Add notes to clarify issues as needed.
Property values can be adversely effected by contaminated property...Standard on the Valuation of Properties Affected by Environmental Contamination. Financing is known to affect property value. The impact is particularly significant when favorable or unfavorable financing is obtained. In the case of environmentally contaminated properties, two types of financing effects need to be considered: the ability of a prospective buyer to finance the purchase of the property and the terms for financing the actual costs to cure contamination problems. If prospective buyers cannot obtain typical financing due to the problem, the cash equivalency value of the property will be diminished. If terms for financing the costs to cure problems are poor, additional liability or unfavorable debt will reduce buyer income anticipation and thereby reduce market value. Many lenders, particularly in Region 5 EPA (which includes Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin) are developing innovative programs to help finance blighted land revitalization. http://katastar.rgz.gov.rs/masovna-procena/Files/12.Standard_Valuation_Properties_Affected_by_Enviromental_Contamination.pdf
With meth-contaminated homes, it's buyer beware...a real estate agent who had bought the home to fix up and sell, spent about $26,000 on meth testing, cleanup and then retesting to ensure it was safe for the new homeowner to move in. Other buyers have discovered such contamination too late, losing thousands of dollars and winding up with homes that had to be stripped to the studs. Colorado's Neighborhood Stabilization Program operated in areas with high foreclosure rates, purchasing, renovating and selling 167 single family homes and 139 multifamily rental units. 7 percent of the single-family and 11 percent of the multifamily units properties were contaminated,by meth. http://www.denverpost.com/ci_22827863/meth-contaminated-homes-its-buyer-beware
Guidelines for Cleaning Up Former Methamphetamine Labs...Meth (methamphetamine) labs, used to make the illegal drug methamphetamine, turn up in houses, apartments, motel rooms, sheds, trailers and even motor vehicles.

The number of lab seizures by law enforcement increases each year. http://www.deq.state.ok.us/LPDnew/methlabs/meth.htm
