In today’s turbulent real estate market, many people who would otherwise purchase residential or commercial properties are now turning to leasing. For many, leasing provides them with the flexibility and the ability to move into a property when the market is uncertain and purchase finance options are not always available.
It’s important for both landlords and potential tenants to do their homework with regards to potential indoor and outdoor environmental concerns at a property being considered for a lease. This may include talking with the landlord, researching the building’s prior use and hiring an environmental professional to perform an inspection and possible environmental testing.
“Landlords and tenants are bound to deal truthfully when negotiating a lease,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video. “Ask about issues dealing with chemicals, past flooding events, mold, sewage contamination, asbestos, lead, radon and vapor intrusion issues. Many may also consider hiring an environmental professional to perform a Phase I and II Review. We hope this video helps to educate people about ways to protect their health and investment in a property lease.”
