Get the Facts

During a Phase I ESA, we take a look at the historical uses of the property you are considering purchasing. We’ll also dig into the way it’s currently being used. This ensures that you get the complete picture during your inquiry.

So what all does this type of environmental report take into consideration? Generally speaking, it will often include the following pieces of research. We start by doing on on-site inspection where we will look for materials that are potentially dangerous or hazardous. This can include a number of different chemicals and products, but you can rest assured that we’ll be thorough in our inspection.

Next, we’ll consult directories, records, maps, photographs, and other relevant records to confirm our findings. We will also — pardon the pun — dig in, looking at the geology of the land you are considering purchasing. Finally, we’ll speak with people who have owned the land in the past as well as other parties relevant to our inquiry. The end result is a comprehensive environmental report that allows you to make the best decision for your situation.
