Frequently Asked Questions
To determine what, if any, environmental risks a piece of land may impact on the people and community, an environmental professional will conduct what is known as a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) on the site/sites. Recognized environmental conditions (RECs) can be identified by looking at documents, inspecting the environment, and talking to current and past property owners, managers, and renters. These include things like waste, spills, and pollution. The purpose of a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is to give a lender, buyer, or owner a solid foundation on which to base their evaluation of the property’s possible environmental concerns.
A property needs a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) in Sacramento, California, if you are involved in a real estate transaction and want to assess the potential environmental liabilities associated with the property. Lenders and buyers often require a Phase 1 ESA as part of their due diligence process to ensure that they are not assuming any unexpected environmental liabilities. In some cases, regulatory agencies in California may also require a Phase 1 ESA as a condition of obtaining a permit or conducting certain activities on the property. A Phase I ESA can provide valuable information about the potential environmental risks associated with a property and help to mitigate or manage these risks.
In Sacramento, California, a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is normally conducted by an environmental consulting firm that has the training, knowledge, practices, and method to evaluate the risks posed by a property’s environmental conditions.
