Environmental due diligence (Phase 1 Environmental Survey, regulator negotiation, recommended lender actions)
Using our expertise in environmental liability assessment, we analysed environmental data and historical ordnance survey (OS) mapping. We established the potential contaminative risk related to infilled land and a landfill. By conducting searches with the Planning Authority, Environmental Health Officer and the Environment Agency, we gathered information on the landfill involving contents, age and monitoring undertaken. When coupled with a site inspection to identify any evidence of ongoing risks from this source, we were able to evaluate the possibility of an environmental liability arising at the site of its ongoing use.
By identifying the specific risk and gathering targeted data to address this, we determined whether the site was acceptable as a lending security for the client and facilitated a smooth transaction.
