Valuing Contaminated Properties

Real estate appraisers, developers, investors and lenders have struggled with the challenges of contaminated properties for over two decades. Through research, discussion and debate, they have developed methods and professional standards to assess how environmental problems affect real estate and a wide variety of techniques to determine property value. This book chronicles 20 years of appraisal literature, providing a complete overview of the methods applied to remediate various forms of contamination, the stigma the market attaches to environmental risk, and the changing legal environment in which these issues are addressed.
