For an upcoming issue of Commonwealth, we want to talk about the various environmental hazards Realtors® will run into, and how they should handle them with buyers and sellers.
We’re talking things like…
- Carbon monoxide
- Air and water quality
- Sewage or "blackwater" contamination
- Septic systems
- Underground oil tanks
- Lead paint
- Meth lab residue
Help us. Can you suggest any other issues like these you’ve run into? Do you have a story to tell — scary, funny, or best of all, informative?
Did someone try to sue you because they didn’t like the taste of the water? Or because there was a funny smell in the basement?
Do you take any specific steps — like, say, paying for a radon test even if the buyer declines?
You get the idea. Reply here or drop a note to Andrew. Doesn’t even have to be detailed; we’ll talk to you when it’s convenient to get the full story.
Thanks for your help!
