Petroleum Tank Removal in Fairfax VA: Is it Necessary to the Sale of Your Home?

Is petroleum tank removal in Fairfax VA necessary to the sale of your home? Yes and no.

If the petroleum tank has been previously decommissioned in a legal and safe manner (also known as abandonment), then there is no law requiring petroleum tank removal to sell a home in Fairfax VA. However - and any legitimate Realtor will confirm this -- if you want to sell your home for the maximum amount, you need to have a petroleum tank removal done.

If you home has a petroleum tank that hasn’t been properly decommissioned - and the tank is not in good shape or not currently being used - then it will be almost impossible to sell your house (unless it is a tear down). This is because banks will not write mortgages for homes that may have leaking petroleum tanks.

In most cases, it will cost less to have petroleum tank removal completed, in Fairfax VA than what a seller would lose on the sale of their home with a decommissioned oil tank. Also, Virginia’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has a fund that can help reimburse some costs of petroleum tank removal in Fairfax VA.

Serving Fairfax VA, the rest of Northern Virginia, and Washington DC residential and commercial markets since 1987, SES Mid Atlantic specializes in testing and safely removing above- and below-ground petroleum tanks.
