Transaction Screen

The Transaction Screen represents a reduced scope of work from the Phase I ESA and is designed to provide an initial indication of the environmental condition of commercial real estate. The completion of a Transaction Screen is intended to satisfy the appropriate inquiry requirements of CERCLA’s innocent landowner defense and is considered to be a commercially prudent assessment. While use of the Transaction Screen is not always appropriate, Grant may identify opportunities to implement this process in lieu of the Phase I ESA process.

Transaction Screens include the following tasks:

  • Site reconnaissance
  • Limited historical search
  • Database search
  • Owner/Occupant questionnaire
  • Report documenting findings and recommendations
