2018 Best Environmental Records Search & Risk Assessment


Environmental Records Search & Risk Assessment (RSRA) is a low cost alternative to Phase 1 Environmental AssessmentSometimes called "Preliminary Phase 1 Assessment", Environmental Records Search & Risk Assessment is sometimes the only environmental assessment required for "low risk" sites.  

For sites that typically require full Phase I Environmental Assessment RSRA is a quick and inexpensive way to assess potential risk even prior to presenting a purchase offer or bid.  For instance, if a site you are considering has a history of environmental defect or deficiency RSRA is a quick verification of disclosed information and current status.  Also, if you are considering multiple sites Environmental Records Search & Risk Assessment on your first-choice site is a fast and low-cost way to rule out a potentially high-risk site.  

This form of environmental assessment is not appropriate for all sites but if your property qualifies, Environmental Records Search can be completed with or without the property owner's knowledge, in 7 days or less and at $495 is affordable environmental assessment,  When RSRA is used as a preliminary form of environmental assessment the full cost of RSRA will be credited toward the cost of full Phase I Environmental Assessment for the same site and ordered within 90 days.

Environmental Records Search & Risk Assessment

Environmental Records Search & Risk Assessment (RSRA), sometimes called “Preliminary Phase 1 Assessment” is often used as a stand-alone assessment for low risk and/or low cost properties. The United States Small Business Administration Standard Operating Procedure SBA SOP 50-10 5(C) specifies RSRA for low risk properties, especially on loans of $250,000 or less.  This form is also an excellent product for determining risk potential very early in the purchase process and especially useful if you are evaluating more than one property and especially in the case of perceived "high risk" type property.

Unlike a full Phase 1 Environmental Assessment (ESA) Environmental Records Search & Risk Assessment relies on extensive research but does not involve a site visit.  Our proprietary protocol does include assessment of area geology and hydrology which enhances results for a more definitive assessment.  The end result of RSRA is the Environmental Professional’s opinion of level of risk (low – high) of contamination to the Target Property from current and historical conditions on the property and on neighboring properties as recorded in federal, state and local databases.  If necessary, the report will recommend additional investigation or testing but very often no additional investigation is required.   

Environmental Records Search with Risk Assessment is a lesser form of environmental assessmen.  Phase I Environmental Assessment is a more rigorous investigation and has more definitive results.  Phase 1 Environmental Assessment meets or exceeds the accepted standard for due diligence and qualifies the user to apply for the innocent landowner defense (42 U.S.C. §§9601(35) and contiguous property owner liability protection (42 U.S.C. §9607(q)) should it ever be necessary to do so.  RSRA is not a sufficient investigation to qualify the user for federal liability protections.

If your lender requires full Phase I Environmental Assessment and/or if you desire or your corporate policy requires federal environmental liability protections then RSRA will not work for you, but if a low cost opinion of level of risk meets your needs Environmental Records Search & Risk Assessment may be the appropriate level of environmental assessment for you.  Keep in mind that based on findings Phase 1 may still be necessary but only if in the opinion of the Environmental Professional there is high risk of environmental contamination that either originates on site or migrates to the site through soil or groundwater and only if you agree.  Also be aware that RSRA does NOT qualify you for any liability protections.  Contact your Environmental Professional to determine if RSRA is appropriate for your site and situation.
