In response to the cost of assessment... I purchased a small (2000 sq ft ) Garage/Loft space in the cannon wentworth area... part of the mortgage required a phase 1 environmental assessment.

Phase 1 assesses the 'chances' of toxic contamination Phase 2 is a more detailed examination of ( including swabs etc) Phase 3 regards what would be required to clean up the site ...

My phase 1 assessment was about 1800 phase 2 If necessary (it wasn't -so stay away matt ;-) ) was estimated at 5000$

I never got a quote on phase 3 as it never ( thankfully) got that far.

Any clean up of these sites would require a phase 3 to be completed ... I would assume the cost would be 2-3 times the cost of phase 2. Also the price would be determined by the size of area / building ...

I've only posted this to give an idea of the costs involved for an assessment , the real cost i assume is in the cleanup and 'certified' disposal of the waste.
