Although it’s hard to believe, 2019 has arrived. That means that people all across the world are reflecting on the past year and looking forward in the hope of uncovering what this year has to offer. At Nelson Enviro, we think that’s a wonderful thing.

Of course, the start of a new year also means that people are considering all of the things that they want to change in the year ahead. For some, it’s a resolution to eat healthier foods, be more active, and just get into better shape. For others, it’s re-dedicating themselves to a hobby that they’ve always loved but haven’t seemed to have time for lately. The point is that the resolutions people make at this time of year run the gamut.

If you are considering purchasing land in 2019, we think that having a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment done is one resolution you should make (and keep!). But what does that mean for you? We’d be happy to explain, so keep reading to learn more.

Peace of Mind in the New Year

One of the best things about working with our team of environmental professionals is that we can help to provide you with peace of mind before you make a big decision. Buying land is often a life-changing event, but it can be even more so if the land you purchase ends up holding some secrets.

For example, imagine if you found the perfect piece of farm land up here in Northern California and your plan was to settle in and raise a cow, have a few chickens, and get some goats. You also planned to grow your own vegetables. That’s a wonderful goal to have! A bit of peace and quiet, tucked away in a beautiful spot — would it get any better than that? Unfortunately, you discover that the land in question had previously been used as an oil refinery. Needless to say, that’s not something anyone wants to have happen to them.

The good news is that having us conduct a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment — also known by many as a Phase I ESA — means that we can catch some of those issues before they’d really affect you. In other words, our thorough and in-depth research would allow us to figure out how the land you’re considering buying has been used in the past which would lead to you making an informed decision and saving yourself a massive headache.

No Matter Your Industry, We Can Help

The example we gave above is for an individual purchasing a piece of land, but did you know that the team at Nelson Enviro serves a number of different industries? Whether you’re a real estate professional, a banker, a small business owner, a real estate investor, or an agricultural operator, we’d be glad to work with you to provide you with peace of mind. At the end of the day, having peace about your purchase can make all the difference in the world, and we’ll be there to lend the helping hand that makes it a reality.

Have a question about ESA reports? That’s common! It’s not the type of thing that people have to deal with on a regular basis, but the good news is that our team has the answers you’re looking for. Wondering why a Phase I would be required? How about what’s involved with the process? Perhaps you are curious about who regulates the process? Maybe you’d like to know how long it will take to get your report back? Not a problem. We’ve put together a page of frequently asked questions to make sure you have all of the info you need.

Of course you can also feel free to contact us any time because we would be glad to answer any other questions you may have. We know that needing an environmental report is probably a little out of the ordinary for you, but we want you to know that we’ll always be here to make sure you get the help you need.
