I am considering buying a house and land near Ganges, Herault. The property have everything we were looking for, but unfortulately has a little extra in terms of polluted land near the river - heavy metal pollution. I’m trying to find out more (for example exactly which fields are polluted, how bad is the pollution, is the pollution is the spring water and the water table as well, etc, etc)
The agent, naturally enough, has said it is nothing to worry about, much of the land around there is polluted from old mine workings upstream.
Has anyone had experience of buying or selling polluted land?
