Homeowner Tip: If your home currently has an underground oil tank, the area will need to be tested for contamination before you sell the house. Many are choosing to move their oil tanks inside or to convert to gas heat to avoid potential issues with leaking tanks and soil contamination. According to Elise Flagg, an Associate Broker with Houlihan Lawrence, “Buried oil tanks are a very serious environmental issue for today's buyers. An owner selling their home should be prepared to disclose this information. How and if it is to be removed will be a discussion between the buyer and the seller.”

If you do decide to remove the tank, here is what you need to know from Keith Shutzman, a real estate attorney who does many closings in town and is familiar with local law:

  • Look for a reputable company to test the tank for leaks and to test the area around the tank for soil contamination. They should remove the tank in accordance with NYS law.
  • If there is contamination, it will have to be remediated in accordance with statutory protocol (basically by removing dirt and pumping out oil until test results show no contamination). There is no getting around that.
  • If there is contamination, by law it must be reported to the NYSDEC which opens a file and assigns a spill number to the matter. The spill number is closed after the remediation company delivers the appropriate documentation and test results to the DEC. It is important that you are given copies of all documentation related to the tank removal (and if required, the remediation)

If you have further questions, contact Keith Shutzman at 914-713-0001 or by email at keith@schutzmanlaw.net.

180 Gaylor sales price is $918K and real estate taxes are $16,574.

60 Palmer Avenue sales price is $570K and real estate taxes are $16,725.

Thus the former residents of 60 Palmer have been paying a tax rate that is 63% higher than the rate paid by their neighbors on Gaylor Avenue.

The local press reports that the Mayor has succeeded in attaining approval for village-wide reassessment (kudos to Mayor Flisser) -- let's get on with it and build some integrity into our tax system.
