Environmental Due Diligence
Various Locations, Massachusetts
Watermark was awarded Master Services Agreements (MSA’s) with several financial institutions including banks and credit unions (Confidential Clients). As part of these MSA’s, Watermark routinely performed environmental due diligence services to support property transfers, refinancing and/or bankruptcy proceedings. Properties assessed include commercial, industrial or residential properties. As part of the environmental due diligence services, Watermark conducted a thorough review of state and federal environmental databases and historic sources (fire insurance maps, aerial photographs, historic topographic maps, historic atlases and city stree
t directories). Interviews with town officials (Assessor, Conservation Commission, Fire Department, Board of Health, Public Works, and/or Engineering Department) to obtain information and documents regarding the property and surrounding properties were also performed. Comprehensive site inspections and identification of potential environmental liabilities including the inspection of the property and associated improvements were completed as well as preparation of reports summarizing the activities conducted and findings of the investigation.
