Oil & Septic Issues Can Break the Deal

As a realtor or real estate attorney, you understand the consequences environmental issues can have on a real estate transaction; improperly abandoned oil tanks and faulty septic systems can delay or even cancel real estate transactions. Whether you represent the buyer or the seller, it would be in your best interest to guide your client to an effective, efficient solution and get the deal back on track.

Oil Tank & Septic Issues

Under New Jersey law (N.J.A.C. 5:23-3.14 / Building Sub Code / Bulletins 88-3 and 91-4BFPC / 90 F-2806.11) all fuel tanks under 2,001 gallons that have been taken out of service must be safeguarded (or removed) within 90 days.

Unfortunately, not all routine real estate inspections reveal buried oil tanks. These decommissioned underground tanks can show up later upon further inspection and, if not properly abandoned, can cause problems for both the property buyer and the seller, whether you are dealing with residential or commercial properties.

Likewise with faulty septic systems. Standard home inspections don’t include inspections by a professional septic contractor. Some home inspectors will do a visual-only inspection of the septic system to look for signs of discharge or damaged components. If the inspection was not done as per NJDEP guidelines, it can be incomplete and inconclusive. Statewide Environmental Services LLC would be happy to review your septic report at no charge.

At Statewide Environmental Services LLC, we have found that a vast majority of malfunctioning conditions only needed minor repairs (or pumping). As a real estate professional, having an experienced environmental contractor you can rely on can save your clients money and you the deal.
