» Environmental Liability Assumpion & Real Estate Acquisition

In addition to fee-based transference of environmental liabilities, Environmental Liability Transfer actively purchases commercial and/or industrial facilities, portfolios and land sites throughout North America. In doing so, ELT clients often discover that their environmental liabilities can be transferred while receiving a positive net payment in return.


Through ELT affiliate, Commercial Development Company, Inc., we are able to provide clients a broad base of solutions for distressed real estate – including real estate acquisition and horizontal and vertical redevelopment.


» Sale Leaseback & Other Creative Capital Solutions Available 

Environmental Liability Transfer, Inc. will purchase environmentally contaminated holdings while providing complete liability transfer services to the seller and will leaseback the facilities to the seller. By combining the value of the real estate with the value of the lease, these transactions typically result in a positive net gain for the seller.

If environmental risk is impacting your operations, ELT can remove environmental liabilities from your balance sheet and assume all environmental obligations – past, present, and future. ELT can also leaseback real estate, acquire under-performing assets, and provide other strategic capital solutions.
