You love your little home. It was perfect for you and your spouse when you first got married; small and cozy. However, now your home is just a little too small as your family has continued to grow through the years. You have taken the right steps and contacted a real estate agent to put your house on the market. Over the years, you have come to find out that there is an underground oil tank on your property but it really has not been a big concern for you. It never caused a problem for you and really was not something that you thought of as any kind of an issue. Your real estate agent advises you, however, that the presence of an underground oil tank on the property could potentially ruin the sale of your house and that you should have it removed. You agree and begin the process of removing the tank. Once the oil tank is located, though, you are made aware that there is a grave problem: the underground oil tank is corroded and has leaked.
The problem that these prospective buyers came across is not one that is uncommon. There are many homeowners that will tend to overlook or just simply ignore the presence of an underground oil tank until they are faced with some sort of a problem because of it. At that point, it could be too late and the oil tank may cause a huge problem for the property and be a very costly burden. The problem that is caused by an underground oil tank leak is the fact that the soil and ground around the oil tank becomes contaminated by the reminisce that has been left in the underground oil tank.
When an underground oil tank leaks, New Jersey’s Department of Agriculture must be alerted. They are essentially put on notice that the leak exists that the homeowner is going to begin work to bring the soil back to environmental safe levels which is a necessity. The process of completely cleaning out the soil can be a time consuming (and money consuming) one. However, there are a variety of grants that may be available to the homeowner to be able to offset the costs.
