Environmental site assessments are a standard part of the majority of real estate transactions such as financing/re-financing, due diligence and insurance. WES conducts assessments for financial institutions, real estate trusts and homeowners on properties throughout Vancouver Island and across British Columbia. An Environmental Site Assessment is a report prepared by a professional environmental consultant, that identifies potential or existing environmental contamination liabilities for a commercial, industrial or residential properties real estate holding. Environmental Site Assessments can shield buyers and limit liability by identifying environmental risks preceding the transaction. Many lenders will not loan money to purchase certain properties if the buyer has not completed an environmental site assessment.
We routinely assess residential underground storage tanks, dry cleaners, and industrial businesses such as automotive repairs and service stations.
