Environmental Data Resources

Jim Katen is qualified (EDR-Certified) to provide neighborhood environmental reports. This type of report can tell you about environmental concerns such as hazardous waste sites, landfills, illegal drug labs and nearby leaking underground oil tanks that may be dangerous to your family and/or your investment. If you are scheduled for a home inspection by Jim, this report can be added for an additional fee of $100.
