Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (Phase I ESA) are the central product in Partner’s Environmental Due Diligence practice. Phase I ESAs are our core environmental expertise. Partner fully understands how the Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Report is used in the commercial and multi-family real estate industry.
Phase I Environmental Site Assessment
A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is the gold standard for evaluating the environmental liability associated with a real estate asset. Partner is truly an expert at the implementation of the ASTM 1527-2005 Standard. Our Phase I Reports are done by Environmental Professionals who meet the requirements of the EPA’s AAI Standard.
Our experience in Phase I Environmental Site Assessments dates back to before the creation of the ASTM Standards. Having performed Phase I ESAs on hundreds of thousands of properties, we offer our clients a perspective on every property type.
All Appropriate Inquiries Rule
The EPA’s All Appropriate Inquiries Rule governing the scope of Phase I Environmental Site Assessments went into effect on November 1, 2006 and provided specific scope requirements for a Phase I ESA to meet the requirements of CERCLA’s innocent land owner defense.
In Partner’s environmental risk practice, we help buyers meet the legal requirements for the CERCLA innocent landowner defense and we provide practical business advice on environmental liablity to our clients.
Partner has secured a strong hold as a top provider in SBA environmental consulting nationwide by acquiring US-Reports, Inc., a key provider of Phase I Environmental Site Assessments across the United States.
