In addition, CONNOR has experience in performing  assessments in accordance with the environmental assessment requirements of over 150 private lending groups.

Environmental
Site Assessments for property transfers have been used to establish an “innocent landowner defense” for property owners and lending institutions.

One-Mile Radius Regulatory Database Review

CONNOR has developed a streamlined  report that can be used to determine whether a property or any properties in the immediate area are listed on applicable regulatory databases.
