A bargain Phase I ESA is a poor investment!
Since a Phase I Report protects you from potential risk, it is really an investment. It informs you about the deal you are entering, including whether it is wise to go through with the deal at all. A proper Phase I will equip you with real sureties if your property is found to have environmental issues. You don’t want to blow your money needlessly, but there are some grave red flags involved with a cheap Phase I Environmental Site Assessment.
For example, if your car is broken, do you use the cheapest mechanic around? If you are buying a house, do you get the lowest home inspection available? If you are sick, would you go to the poorest doctor? Most of us want to avoid getting bargain help when a big investment is at risk.
In the end, if all you’re concerned about is the price, you might not get the best deal after all. A crummy Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is not worth the risk.
