There are currently thousands of foreclosure properties for sale in New Jersey at this time. Many of these property's have either have had heating oil tanks or currently have them buried on site. Many companies recomend a" tank sweep" prior to purchase to identify if there are currently any buried tanks oniste. Property " Tank Sweeps" do not identify possible soil or ground water contamination. With the average residential oil tank remediation cost exceeding $20,000, it may be a wise investment to have soil and ground water testing completed prior to purchase. Some cases the soil contamination was so bad, the entire house had to be moved costing well over $ 200,000. On site contamination may not be the only problem, as the neighbors leaking tank or the gasoline station up the street maybe be contaminating the subject property. Commercial properties such as warehouses, strip malls and former gasoline stations may also have big environmental problems.
