Frequently Asked Questions
In Florida, a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is an evaluation of a site for environmental dangers or pollution. The goal of the assessment is to identify and evaluate any known environmental condition that might affect the property’s value, constitute a threat to human health or the environment, or alter the site’s future usage. Typically, the evaluation consists of a study of past and present land use, a site visit, and an examination of regulatory documents and databases to identify any potential environmental risks connected with the property.
In Florida, a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is frequently needed as part of the due diligence for real estate transactions, such as the acquisition, sale, or financing of property. The goal of the assessment is to identify potential environmental liabilities that may affect the property’s value, constitute a threat to human health or the environment, or affect the site’s future usage. This data is utilized by property owners, purchasers, and lenders to make educated judgments regarding the property and to reduce the risk of environmental contamination liability. In addition, certain municipal and state rules in Florida may mandate a Phase 1 ESA as a prerequisite for property development or land use change.
The duration of a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) in Florida can vary depending on the size and complexity of the property, the extent of available records and databases, and the availability of staff to complete the assessment. On average, a Phase 1 ESA can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks to complete. However, the duration can be shorter or longer, depending on the circumstances. To ensure a timely completion, it is important to have all necessary information and records readily available, and to allocate adequate resources to complete the assessment.
