We work with owners, buyers, sellers, lenders and attorneys to
design and conduct a cost-effective due diligence strategy to
achieve your two main goals:
1 Environmental Assessment for Land
ASTM E 1527-05 or ASTM E 1527-13 Phase 1
Assessment are NOT VALID forms of assessment for sites of 120
acres or more.
The proper form is
ASTM E 2247-08 Environmental
Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment for
Forestland or Rural Property.
ASTM E 2247-08
Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I
Environmental Site Assessment Process for Forestland or Rural
Property is the specific form of environmental assessment for
property defined as 120 acres or greater of forestland or rural property
or with a developed use of only managed forestland and/or
agriculture with respect to the range of contaminants within the
scope of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and
Liability Act (CERCLA) and petroleum products. The
property need not be contiguous; however, the non-contiguous areas
should be substantially the same general land use and be part of the
same transaction. The property may contain isolated areas of
non-forestland and non-rural property.
ASTM E 2247-08 Standard Practice is intended to permit a user to satisfy one of the requirements to qualify for the innocent landowner, contiguous property owner, or
bona fide prospective purchaser
limitations on CERCLA liability: that is, the practice constitutes
"all appropriate inquiry into the previous ownership and uses
of the property consistent with good commercial or customary
practice" as defined at 42 U.S.C. § 9601(35)(B).
Environmental Site Assessment of Forestland or Rural Property fulfills
the requirements of all appropriate inquiry as defined at federal
statute 42 U.S.C. §§ 9601(35)(B) to satisfy one one of the
requirements to qualify for:
federal environmental liability protection i.e. innocent
landowner or innocent purchaser 42 U.S.C. §§ 9607(b)(3) and 42 U.S.C. §§ 9601(35) should it ever
federal environmental liability protection contiguous
property owner liability protection 42 U.S.C. § 9607(q) should
it ever become necessary and
(for brownfields properties) bona fide prospective purchaser for ">bona
fide prospective purchaser liability protection 42 U.S.C. §
9607(r) pursuant to the Small Business Liability Relief and
Brownfields Revitalization Act, Pub. L. No. 107-118 (2002), 42 U.S.C.
§§ 9601 et. seq.
In addition to forestland, rural property and agricultural property ASTM
E 2247-08 Phase I Standard Practice is also the appropriate form of
environmental assessment for country clubs, golf courses, resorts, wind farm
sitings, land for development for any purpose and all tracts of land
120 acres or greater.
ASTM E 2247-08 Environmental Site Assessment for Forest Land or Rural Property
requires special expertise and both ASTM International standards and federal statute 40 C.F.R.
§ 312.10 require this type of assessment to be completed only by an
environmental professional with previous experience assessing this
specific type of property.
