The property owner becomes the RP (Responsible Party) for the remediation of dry cleaner sites when the operator of the dry cleaner and the generator of contamination cannot be held financially responsible. This means if the operator cannot be found, is not insured, or is insolvent then the property owner is the responsible party and is ultimately responsible for any contamination on the property. It is always in the best interest of the property owner to understand the environmental situation regarding your dry cleaning tenant, to guard against remediation costs with insurance if possible, and to seek the help of a professional consultant.
