This model letter provides a template that closing installations can use to clarify liability issues for potential buyers to help facilitate the transfer of property at installations that have been listed on the NPL. The letter addresses some common misunderstandings about such listing and liability under CERCLA and highlights certain provisions governing the transfer of Federally owned property. The letter also emphasizes that whether property is part of an NPL site has no effect on liability under CERCLA. By clarifying these issues, installations may help ease potential buyers' concerns about liability.
