If you are buying or leasing a property you want to be sure that you are not taking on an environmental problem such as toxic substances under the ground or Japanese Knotweed growing on the property.
If you are selling a property you need to be prepared for a buyer to make full enquiries about the environmental position, and be able to answer those questions.
If you are mortgaging your property, your bank, building society or other funder will want satisfactory information about environmental issues.
In conjunction with our environmental specialist lawyers, we will help you consider what action you need to take or draft contracts and leases to clarify responsibility for environmental issues.
If there is an environmental problem consider:
- Whether you want to carry out further investigations;
- Who is responsible?
- What can be done about the problem?
- Whether you should appoint an expert environmental consultant.
