What Is Transaction Screening?
A Transaction Screen is a preliminary, limited assessment of a property to determine whether a full Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is required. This practice is intended for use on a voluntary basis by parties who wish to assess the environmental condition of a property where a Phase I ESA is initially deemed to be unnecessary by the user and the parties do not seek CERCLA LLPs*.
