An oil tank sweep is like a home inspection but is specific to one thing, finding an “undisclosed” buried oil tank. Tank sweeps are becoming more common in the real estate sales process. Today both sellers and buyers are having tank sweeps performed due to the large concern over leaking tanks.
The liability associated Underground Heating Oil Tanks (USTs) is fairly well known to most buyers and sellers nowadays.The laws are set that when you own a property you own the problem, the courts have ruled that a current residential property owner with a “leaking underground storage tank”that was decommissioned or “closed” prior to the property’s purchase is now liable for cleanup costs. The residential real estate market must conduct their due diligence to include inquiry regarding underground storage tanks. You buy the property you buy the problem.
