WHY IT’S IMPORTANT FOR OWNERS
If you’re a prospective buyer, most likely you’ve already made an appointment with a building inspector. Good for you! But what about the quality of the soil that the house is built on? Think it’s only a small detail? Not if you consider that contamination can seriously compromise your investment… and your health. And if you’re an owner, you’re not necessarily immune.
In fact, a property located on a contaminated site poses many risks:
Some soil contaminants rise to the surface (for example, biogas). They can affect occupants through skin contact, inhalation, or even the ingestion of foods grown in contaminated soil, causing numerous health problems in both the short and long term.
As an owner, you are fully responsible for decontaminating the property, which can really “contaminate” your budget! Trying to pass on the costs to the previous owner by taking them to court is possible, but lawsuits are long, complex, and expensive.
Since some contaminants can migrate through soil, fence disputes are to be expected. When they discover that their property has been contaminated, your neighbours might hold you responsible. And if a judge sides with them, you’ll be the one footing the bill.
Nobody wants the bad news that their property is contaminated, but it’s an all too common occurrence. What’s more, there are so many cases of contaminated residential sites in Quebec that we can no longer look the other way.
