Frequently asked questions
“Contaminated sites are deposits, disused sites, and soil and groundwater bodies contaminated by them, which – on the basis of a risk assessment – pose significant risk to human health or the environment. Contamination resulting from emissions into the air are not within the scope of this Act.” (Art. 2(1) the Remediation of Contaminated Sites Act (ASLAG)
Before you buy a site or a property, check the register of suspected contaminated sites and the register of contaminated sites or contaminated sites map (from the Federal Environment Agency) for any entry that might lead you to suspect contamination. If there is any doubt, buyers can request that sellers undertake a soil survey. This will provide certainty about whether the soil is contaminated. Contaminated areas can decrease the value of a site and entail expensive clean-up measures. Want to know more? Our customer service will be happy to answer your questions.
The costs of a (chemical waste) soil survey, also known as a geotechnical report or subsoil report, depend on the work involved. But if you are in any doubt, it is worth requesting a survey be undertaken, as soil contamination can mean you incur high costs.
