The Redevelopment of Contaminated Property


Understand the problems caused by contaminated soils and how to develop a protective and cost-effective purchase and redevelopment strategy.

Many property owners, lessees, architects, engineers, developers, and contractors encounter contaminated soils on residential, commercial, retail, and industrial properties. However, these persons are usually not trained on how to evaluate the legal and technical risks posed by contaminated soils and groundwater. It is important to understand how the presence of contaminated soils or groundwater can impair a person's ability to sell, lease, refinance, or redevelop impacted sites. Moreover, it is equally important to be aware of the options available to finance the purchase of contaminated sites, as well as the options available to them to mitigate the risks of purchasing or redeveloping contaminated sites. Finally, persons involved in the redevelopment of contaminated property must understand the potential regulatory reuse restrictions and engineering controls that can affect the future property uses. This topic will inform you about the problems facing them, complications caused by contaminated soils and groundwater, and how to develop a protective and cost-effective purchase and redevelopment strategy.
