only to find out that the potential buyer wants the tanks removed prior to closing. Many heating oil tanks were 'filled in place" without proper documentation such as soil sampling from under the tank. Without proper soil testing of the soils around and under the tank the soils may be contaminated with heating oil above the NJDEP's Soil Clean-Up Standards. Although a property may be purchased " As Is" the buyer may still have recourse against the seller even years later.
