Testimonials Page

My wife and I began searching for our first home. We were in need of someone who really knew the housing industry. Chip and Tara helped us achieve the best experience of being a first time homebuyer. They both pointed out appearance issues and potential structure issues of the house we were looking to purchase. They were very patient in helping us develop a strategy for buying our first home. After we were comfortable with the buying strategy, they were quick to take action and start the negotiation process. Being an engineer, it’s my nature to analyze every word on all the documents. I really appreciated Chip’s patience as asked many questions. Chip also recommended an inspection company that was very reputable. After we agreed on a price and were pleased with the inspection, we went to sign the papers. Chip was still there for us answering all of our questions and helping us to understand. Thanks to Chip and Tara for making our housing experience a special and very enjoyable time! The Roberts Family

Underground Heating Oil Tanks

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.
