DEEP: Property Transfer Program

Property Transfer Program

The Property Transfer Law requires the disclosure of environmental conditions when certain real properties and/or businesses ("establishments") are transferred.  When an establishment is transferred, one of four Property Transfer Forms must be completed, signed, executed and filed with DEEP, per Sections 22a-134 through 22a-134e of the Connecticut General Statutes.  The Property Transfer Law also requires that a party signing the Property Transfer Form certification agrees to investigate the parcel and remediate pollution caused by any release of a hazardous waste or hazardous substance from the establishment.
