This is a very tricky matter to handle on your own. You can contact the Cal. dept of environmental protection, or whatever it’s called and ask for the section that deals with underground storage tanks. They can probably tell you what the status of this property is regarding the presence of tanks. Many tanks have been removed by the owners, and soil tested in the last ten years. Perhaps that was done with this property, and if that can be established, you might be okay. But check it thoroughly, and don’t take anybody’s word for it. Get the documentation from the state agency, if it exists.
If there is no clean bill of health, then pass.
