Indoor Air Quality television (IAQTV) on you tube just posted an excellent informational video on "Foreclosed Properties & Indoor Environmental Risks". This video provides a basic informational warning on the potential indoor environmental risks in buying a foreclosed property.
Many of these dangers are well-known to those of us in the indoor environmental consulting industry. Future Environment Designs strongly recommends before the purchasing of a foreclosed property (one that has been unoccupied for a long period of time), that the buyer hire a Council-certified Indoor Environmental Consultant (CIEC) to perform an indoor environmental assessment to ensure these dangers are not present or can be easily eliminated. The CIEC will be able to help you determine what would be necessary to eliminate these hazards and help develop cost estimates to be used in negotiating a purchase price of the foreclosed property. If we can help give us a call.
