The Risk of Oil Tanks
Underground heating oil tanks are very common in Vancouver and MUST be removed when selling as required by the City of Vancouver. Many of these tanks were decommissioned years or even decades ago and if decommissioned without proper care could potentially be leaking heating oil into the surrounding soil, underground streams, and neighbouring properties.
The risks associated with both selling a home with a known/unknown underground oil tank as well as the risks of purchasing a home or building lot with one can have massive financial consequences. We are experienced with both selling homes containing underground oil tanks and also purchasing homes for clients and ensuring they are protected from future remediation costs.
