Real Estate Transaction & Regulatory Advocacy
During a real estate transaction, Pure Environmental Solutions was contracted by the owner/seller of a farm and ranch supply, and pipe fabrication facility to assist him with the environmental issues discovered during the completion of the buyer's Phase I ESA. The property owner contracted us because he wasn't pleased with how the buyer's consultant was handling the resolution of the environmental issues.
Once we reviewed the project details, we determined that the buyer's consultant handled the resolution of the environmental issues ineffectively, and we further determined that the consultant had provided the buyer and seller incorrect information regarding the regulatory notification and compliance requirements for the project's environmental issues.
Pure Environmental Solutions worked closely with the property owner to explain the proper regulatory requirements, and to formulate a cost-effective and timely scope of work in order to salvage the impending sale. We assisted the property owner with the proper TCEQ notifications and worked closely with the TCEQ to formulate a workable timeline. Additionally, Pure advocated on behalf of the client with the TCEQ, and we were able to achieve a modified and reduced scope of work that satisfied TCEQ requirements and was affordable to the client.
Our successful advocacy enabled us to help the owner shorten the project timeline by several months or more. Additionally, we were able to obtain regulatory case closure, which helped to salvage the sale of his property.
