Real Estate Environmental Assessment

Real estate transactions are often high-stakes undertakings. Buying a property without understanding the potential environmental risks and liabilities attributable to former site uses can be very costly and discovering historic contamination on a property you have purchased becomes an even larger problem. M.G.L. c. 21E Massachusetts Oil and Hazardous Material Release Prevention Act also known as the State Superfund Law is the statute encompassing issues related to the identification and cleanup of property contaminated by releases of oil and/or hazardous material to the environment, widely referenced as merely “21E”.
