The EDR Neighborhood Environmental Report™

In response to increased homebuyer and homeowner due diligence as well as expanding disclosure standards and legislation for sellers of residential property, Accuracy Assured Home Inspections, LLC is now offering the EDR Neighborhood Environmental Report. The EDR report is the most accurate and comprehensive environmental report available to the residential real estate industry.

stamp.gifMany residential properties and neighborhoods are clean, but even the most pristine and affluent areas can have environmental issues that affect health and home values. The EDR Neighborhood Environmental Report helps ensure that there are no surprises during or after the transaction by searching records of contamination from common occurrences such as:

  • Leaking underground fuel or gas tanks that can contaminate soil and groundwater;
  • Homes formerly used as "meth" labs, where residual chemicals can cause illness;
  • Contamination from nearby industrial sites, accidental toxic spills or leaks;
  • EPA and State top priority clean-up properties.

If a problem is discovered, the EDR Neighborhood Environmental Report provides key information to help home buyers resolve the issue quickly and move forward with confidence.

Sample EDR Neighborhood Environmental Report


Each report starts with a simple summary of findings from the relevant databases for the state where the property is located. The summary is broken into two categories:

  • Environmental Records within 300 feet of the property, and
  • Environmental Records beyond 300 feet.

Each report contains a section that serves as a guide as to how the report is broken down. There are four sections, A-D:

  1. Section A is information on records of known and potential environmental issues within 300 feet.
  2. Section B covers records of known any potential environmental issues beyond 300 feet and out to standard search distances most commonly used by environmental professionals.
  3. Section C provides information about records that lack enough data to be mapped. This results from incomplete government records, making it impossible to precisely locate these “orphan” sites.
  4. Section D contains detailed descriptions of the various databases used and the differences between them. Also, it includes contact information for the relevant government or private organization that maintains the database.
