    Judd Bowers, J. Bowers & Associates, LLC
    J Bowers & Associates (JBA) has operated in the Phoenix Metro area since 1993 and has extensive experience in conducting environmental site assessments (ESA) for real estate transactions and bank loans. JBA has completed hundreds of Phase I ESA in the State of Arizona and the western United States. The Phase I ESA typically is conducted any time you purchase a commercial or industrial property or re-finance the same. The Phase I ESA is also recommended when purchasing undeveloped, vacant land. If you are buying a house in or adjacent to a commercial area or next to a service station, dry cleaners or other environmentally sensitive business, you should also have a Phase I report performed on the property prior to taking title. The main purpose of a Phase I is to make sure you know the true value of the property and to assure there is no soil or groundwater contamination from previous use or neighboring sites that may be impacting the property's value or limiting its use due to regulatory-mandated cleanup, or in worse cases causing civil liability. This civil liability can be caused by human health exposure and offsite migration and devaluation of neighboring properties. This is something you don't want to learn about after you buy the property. The Phase I report should adhere to ASTM Standard E1527-13 in order to provide Landowner Liability Protection and to discover any unknown environmental problems at the property.
