The EPA’s All Appropriate Inquiry rule and the ASTM E1527-13 standard require that each site is researched for Environmental Liens and Activity and Use Limitations (AULs) as part of a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA).
These types of documents are recorded in various government repositories. We research documents located at the City, County, State and Federal levels when conducting an Environmental Lien and AUL report. We will search the property using both Grantor/Grantee indexes, as well as documents recorded against the subject parcel, from the point the current owner purchased the property, to present.
Our Environmental Lien and Activity and Use Limitation reports are provided for 1,000+ property sites monthly. The reports are intended to be used as part of a Phase I ESA.
The Environmental Lien and AUL reports include:
- Environmental Lien summary
- AUL summary
- Legal Description of property
- Deed recording information (book, page, date, grantor and grantee)
- List of all locations researched to complete the report
