If you’re a homeowner or plan on buying your dream house, chances are you might discover an underground oil tank on your property. There are a lot of older houses in NJ, so it is not uncommon to find an old and abandoned oil tank. It wasn’t until the 1960’s that people became aware of the dangers and risk of abandoned oil tanks. Before, homeowners would just bury the tanks in their backyards.
The Entech Group’s experience and proven track record in the environmental service industry has taught us that it is best to have the tank removed from your property as soon as possible. This is because when trying to sell your home in New Jersey, mortgage companies are usually reluctant to write a mortgage on a house with an old and abandoned underground oil tank (UST). This can be very stressful and time consuming, because you will end up paying out of pocket to have the tank removed. Some towns in NJ even go as far as to not allow abandoned oil tanks on houses, unless there is a structural reason that is conflicting with its removal.
Leaking underground oil tanks at homes are a major hazard to the soil and groundwater quality. These tanks can corrode, leak and cause significant damage to our environment. Today, if you leave an abandoned underground oil tank on your property, there’s a high risk that the tank will leak and lead to soil contamination. Until cleaned up, the contamination from the leak may be a considered to be a “defect to the property” and can potentially lower its value. It’s important that you remove the oil tank as soon as possible to prevent further soil contamination and property devaluation or else soil remediation services may be necessary.
Unknown contamination can put buyers at a high risk with environmental liability and potential costs associated with the cleanup.
