Environmental Due Diligence Services
Environmental due diligence protects property owners, investors and managers from environmental liability.
Phase I ESA – And More
In commercial real estate transactions, environmental due diligence is often a requirement for buying, selling or rehabilitating property. While it is easy for buyers and sellers to treat environmental due diligence services as a box to be checked during transaction, it can be helpful to take a step back and consider how important due diligence is to protecting stakeholders during a real estate deal. Environmental due diligence typically starts with a Phase I ESA report, which is a visual inspection and review of historical property records to determine if any hazardous materials might be at play in a property. In addition lenders, insurers, investors, or other stakeholders may require other due diligence reports such as:
- Hazardous Materials Surveys
- Property Condition Assessments (PCAs)
- Probable Maximum Loss Reports
- American Land Title Association Surveys
- Subsurface Soil Examinations
Some, or all reports can be bundled with Phase I ESA.
Essel Environmental's staff is fully trained and certified for all inspections they perform for environmental due diligence services.
While others may outsource tasks to the lowest bidder, we use only in-house engineering professionals.
