Contamination is often invisible, migrates, and the current liability rules may not seem like common sense. When buying or leasing property, it is important to do your environmental due diligence early in the process. Contaminated sites are becoming increasingly common. If a property has been developed in the past for urban or industrial uses, there is a higher risk of contamination. There are ever-increasing costs associated with the remediation of a contaminated site. Also, buyers often face the high costs associated with remediation along with substantial exposure to multiple claims arising from one incident of pollution. We have also acted for landowners in recovering remediation costs from former owners of the property or from adjacent landowners in circumstances involving migration of contaminants. Our multidisciplinary team is well equipped to represent your interests with practical, creative and strategic advice whether buying or selling a property.
