-- Home buying in New Jersey can be exciting but also a very daunting task. A home buyer typically orders a home structural inspection and maybe a tank sweep for underground tanks . At the end of those two services is the buyer actually confident he or she is not purchasing a contaminated site. On the commercial side of real estate a buyer typically orders a Environmental Phase I and then a Environmental Phase II( two) that collects soil and ground water samples. This step by step process has been going on for over thirty years for commercial property purchases. Savvy home buyers are taking the extra step on the residential side of the market. Their are many horror stories out there, that are not folk lore. Bad things have happened to home purchasers. A onsite or neighbors heating oil tank may have leaked or a gas station or dry cleaners over a mile away may have impacted ground water under a home causing VAPOR INTRUSION problems causing sick building syndrome problems. These problems can cause health problems for the occupants and the cost to remediate could cost more than $ 50,000.
