What To Do About The Underground Oil Tank When Selling Your Warrenton, VA Home

In today's buyers' market, it is increasingly difficult for homeowners in the Washington DC area to simply overlook potential problem areas when selling their home, especially an underground oil tank. This is one area of home improvement that may prove to be worth every penny when selling your Northern Virginia home.

While most states, if not all, do not have laws in place that prohibit the transfer of property when an underground oil tank is on premises - such as selling a home in Arlington, VA - but it may be more difficult to do so. As potential homebuyers have more options to choose from, when it comes down to making a decision between a house without an underground oil tank and one with an underground oil tank, the lack-of typically wins the battle.

Many potential homebuyers are afraid of the risk associated with an underground oil tank, and rightfully so. Most studies commissioned by both private and public companies have found that even underground oil tanks that were properly decommissioned end-up leaking at some point. Unfortunately, for most homeowners, the current property owner is responsible for repairing, removing or cleaning-up the contaminated soil - regardless of when the underground oil tank actually began leaking.

Contracting a company with vast experience and knowledge of removing decommissioned underground oil tanks is the best way to solve the problem. Testing your underground oil tank is the first step in the oil tank removal process; contact Soils and Environmental Services, Inc. for more information. Solutions for an oil tank on your Northern Virginia property begin with a conversation with the underground oil tank removal experts at SES. Serving the Northern Virginia and Washington DC area since 1987, SES is the area's premier oil tank inspection and removal company.
