During an inspection we occasionally find a number of items stored on a property that may be an environmental storage concern. They can include items such as:
- petroleum / bitumen / asphalt based products
- automotive parts
- gas tanks
- used oil
- asbestos, lead
- abandoned containers
The list is quite endless actually of possible contaminants and hazardous materials. These items can or may have had an impact on the property as a result.
When the storage of these items is curious and or improper on a property we recommend the effects of such, the proper disposal and removal of these items and the responsibility for any / all costs associated with them be ascertained before purchasing the property. If you’re unsure about the potential environmental impacts are on a property get further professional advice. Once you own the property, the responsibility will rest with you.
