I have to show you an article I just came across in North Jersey news (northjersey.com) about what happens if you don’t do your homework, or take care of a problem in it’s right time (depends which side of the fence your on).
Read here about litigation and $62,000 of cleanup costs. In short, A couple bought a house in Ringwood (a borough in Passaic County), and found they had a leak in the underground tank. To quote from the story there, “For other prospective buyers, LaCour says, a soil test is the No. 1 thing to do where there’s an underground oil tank”. That says it all.
