ARTICLES OF INTEREST

BUYING AND SELLING CONTAMINATED PROPERTY

More and more buyers or sellers of commercial real estate are encountering contamination issues these days.  The presence of contamination should not be a deal-breaker, but to avoid liability the prospective purchaser or seller should be pro-active in evaluating the nature and scope of the contamination.

AN INDEMNITY IS NOT A RELEASE...

Anyone who does a purchase or sale transaction involving contaminated property or even settling future liability involving contamination needs to read this article. Lawyers sometimes confuse an indemnity with a release of future liability. Doing so is a trap for the unwary.  An indemnity in favor of one party protects that party from all environmental claims during the period of the indemnity.
