Underground heating oil tanks can pose many potential problems to both home buyers and sellers. They have been the source of many environmental problems such as contamination of surrounding soil and ground water.
Leaks are generally caused by the rust inside underground tanks or by an electrical condition sparked by electric utility lines.
Buyers should always have the tank inspected to make sure that it is structurally sound. Buyers who do not want an underground fuel tank can arrange for an above ground tank to be installed in the basement and the underground tank to be shut off. Cleanup of any leaks will also have to be taken care of.
For buyers, the underground heating oil tank should be written in the sales contract. For sellers, your lawyer should make sure that the description and condition of the underground heating oil tank is accurate and up-to-date.

Amanda and Natasha are amazing and get the job done! They are efficient, wonderful professionals and great communicators. We didn't think being homeowners could be in our near future but they changed that in such an amazing way.Jacob & Carleigh (March 2019)
Kevin and his team did an excellent job of helping us sell our home. After having a couple of contracts fall through due to inspections, they continued to work hard until we had a good offer and a contract that went through to Closing. Yeah!! I would recommend them highly. They will work hard for you.Roxanne (January 2019)
