While the San Tan Valley was settled long ago, it has only existed as an official, designated census region for a decade. This Phoenix suburb is home to more than 80,000 residents but has only had its own postal code for a handful of years. None of that has stopped it from becoming a beloved community in the greater Phoenix region and an amazing place to develop new properties.
Most lenders require acquiring a Phase I ESA report in San Tan Valley before any kind of commercial real estate transaction can be finalized. While it isn’t required by law, it’s an important step to protect against liability. A Phase I ESA protects the potential buyer, seller, and the community, plus it will also help prevent delays during construction, lawsuits by making any environmental hazards known.

How a Phase I Assessment Works
The Phase I ESA is an initial inspection of a property – this can mean either developed or undeveloped land. We inspect the site and surrounding land and existing structures if there are any. We conduct interviews with current and previous property owners and we go through a historical review of records. These records include those for the site and a regulatory review of parties involved. The course of the ESA will analyze the land and any structures on the property. We’ll conduct a detailed geological, hydrological, topographical and hydrogeological inspection. When all is done, a Phase I ESA will determine any contamination or other problems with the land parcel and protect you from the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA).
