Debra, we want to thank you for all your hard work and efforts to get my Dads home sold. We also want to thank you for all the "above and beyond the call of duty" you have done in order to get my Dads remaining furniture donated to local charities. Again, thanks for all your professionalism, expertise, advice, hard work in behalf of my Dad. Lyle H. Spiering, Jr
Underground heating oil tanks can pose many potential problems to both home buyers and sellers. They have been the source of many environmental problems such as contamination of surrounding soil and ground water.
Leaks are generally caused by the rust inside underground tanks or by an electrical condition sparked by electric utility lines.
Buyers should always have the tank inspected to make sure that it is structurally sound. Buyers who do not want an underground fuel tank can arrange for an above ground tank to be installed in the basement and the underground tank to be shut off. Cleanup of any leaks will also have to be taken care of.
For buyers, the underground heating oil tank should be written in the sales contract. For sellers, your lawyer should make sure that the description and condition of the underground heating oil tank is accurate and up-to-date.
