Identification of risk is a important factor with regard to purchase of a New Jersey Commercial property. Many investors only complete a Environmental Phase I which only provides backround information. soil and ground water samples should be obtained at a minimum. Vapor Intrusion Sampling will provide infomation regarding indoor air quality which can affect the occupants of a building. Soil and ground water operations that existed over 60 years ago can still exist. Contaimation from offsite sources such as dry cleaners, gasoline stations, heating oil tanks can travel across property boundaries and miles. New Jersey was not to have over 20,000 Known Contaminated Sites, although the number of sites has been reduced there is a strong possibility that a comercial property for sal maybe located near on of these sites. Environmental Systems has over 20 years experience charcterizing commercial sites. Custom tailored site assessments can provide the commercial property buyer environmental infromation needed to complete a property risk assessment. It is important that all real estate investors understand that once the deed is transfered they may be responsible for remediation costs.
