An Effective Environmental Due Diligence Report for Low-Risk Commercial Properties

Does your commercial real estate property require additional environmental assessment?

Determining where to go next can be a frustrating experience and could increase wait times and your client’s out-of-pocket expenses. An Environmental Transaction Screen (ETS) could be the answer. An ETS is a lower-cost, faster alternative to a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA). Ordering an ETS provides thorough environmental site assessment while insuring your CRE transaction proceeds smoothly.

What is the difference between an ETS report and Phase I ESA?

An ETS is a limited-scope environmental analysis intended to identify Potential Environmental Concerns in general accordance with ASTM Standard Guidance E1528-14. Environmental Transaction Screens are commonly performed for commercial real estate and recommended for commercial properties where few risks from surrounding properties are anticipated.

Faster Turn-Time

Ordering an ETS is a quick way to receive a thorough environmental assessment to keep the CRE transaction processing smoothly.

Satisfy Loan Requirements

ETS reports are performed in accordance with ASTM E1528-14. When a commercial property requires additional assessment, ordering an ETS can satisfy loan underwriting requirements without the additional time and expense of a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment.

Cost-Reduction

An ETS can save your client money and keep your base costs down, all while expediting the CRE transaction cycle.

An ETS can satisfy conventional loan requirements because it follows ASTM E1528-14. Unlike a Phase I ESA, an ETS does not require analysis of the historical land use of adjacent properties. For certain properties, these limitations on the scope of a Phase I ESA strike the perfect balance between the need for rigorous environmental due diligence and the need to keep transaction costs and times down. Please note the ETS does not meet the all-appropriate inquiry requirement of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and is therefore not eligible for the liability limitations the Act provides for.
