Join a growing group of home inspectors who realize the importance and value of adding a Neighborhood Environmental Report
(NER) to their home inspections. The NER scans over 1,400 databases and millions of records of potential land and groundwater contamination within 1 mile of the entered address.*
The NER will show your buyer the locations of:
- Leaking tanks (e.g., gas stations)
- Spills (e.g., dry cleaners)
- Residential oil spills
- Clandestine drug labs (34,000+ known in the U.S.)
- Superfund sites (about 1,300 in the U.S.)
All potential home buyers should consider screening, but it is especially important to screen homes within 1/2 mile of gas stations, dry cleaners or general commercial use.
*Distance searched varies by database type.
Currently, this service is available only in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
