Due Diligence for a real estate transaction typically begins with a Phase I Investigation. A phase I usually begins with a historic record search, review of historic fire maps and a aerial photograph review. In addition other data sources and possible door to door canvasing of the neighborhood are used to collect site history information . Recently during a Phase I for a commercial lender, Environmental Systems(depenvirosystems.com)
identified gas pumps on aerial photograph of a shopping center in Middlesex County. Soil and ground water investigation identified lead contamination above the NJDEP's Soil Remediation Standards. If the purchaser purchased this property prior to completing a Environmental Phase I, the purchaser would have been responsible for remediation of the site. Environmental Systems can pride comprehensive environmental Phase I and also provide Phase II investigation whichs tests soil and ground water.
