When purchasing a piece of property, it is important to be aware of any environmental liabilities associated with it. For example, you should find out if there are any registered underground tanks within several miles of the property, known contaminated properties in the neighborhood, or property owners who have been fined by the government for failing to meet environmental safety standards.
Before, it took a costly site investigation to acquire this type of information, but now there are online environmental databases available at a fraction of the cost. Anyone can access reports on otherwise hard to detect environmental issues. With these databases, it is possible to obtain a list of hazards near a property, or spills and violations attributed to businesses nearby.
Some reputable databases include VISTA Information Systems, located in San Diego, California, which allows you to register and search the data bank for free, and E Data Resources, which is located in Southport, Connecticut. These services are all relatively inexpensive, but can provide you with priceless information that is useful before you make a purchase.
“Tanya Ruff is an excellent agent. She came recommended by a friend and I would recommend her in the future. She worked non-stop to keep me informed about the process. She took a lot of questions that I had and answered them promptly. Please let me know if I can write any more references for your company or her.”Thomas & Yuan Kisio
“Tanya Ruff was an absolute dream to work with and I consider her a new friend. She was very professional, honest and helpful to us during this process. We had a very bad experience in the past when trying to sell our house and Tanya made every effort to comfort us and relieve us of any fears/concerns. I hope we are here to stay, but I will definitely use and recommend Tanya in the future. Tanya (also) helped us look at a few properties and her knowledge and expertise was obvious. She helped us find our dream house we hope to live in for many years. She helped us list our house and buy a new house within 30 days of looking at the first property!! She is forever our hero and we are forever grateful!”Randy & Britany Schmidt
