    If you think that there remain hazardous materials on the property from the previous owner that either violate the law or constitute a breach of contract you probably should consult with a California environmental attorney. You haven't told us why this is now a problem so many years later and after the county approved a cleanup, so it is hard to comment further. Shell Bleiweiss

    This is really not an environmental/natural resource topic, but I'll venture an answer anyway. An LLC is inexpensive and easy to set up. I think moving the real estate into one would be fairly strait forward too. However, I don't see the need for a corporate structure as long as you carry adequate insurance on the property, including liability coverage. Shell Bleiweiss

    Illinois and the federal government do not ban open fires in the context you are talking about. I don't know whether Palatine does, apparently not from your story. If legal in your town, there is little you can do about it from a regulatory perspective. You always have actions for personal injury available to you but would have to prove negligence.

    Your friend's dad should hire a lawyer in his area that practices natural resources law or fish and wildlife law. Shell Bleiweiss http://www.shell-bleiweiss.com

    You absolutely do need an environmental attorney. Neither the bank approval nor a missed issue by your consultant save you. Current owners are liable. You may have an action available against your consultant if they negligently missed this issue. You don't say where the property is located. You should contact a good environmental attorney in that state.

    You do not say where you are located and probably should consult a local environmental attorney. In general, local government has broad discretion how and when to bring enforcement actions. The best you may be able to do is persist with pressure as an affected neighbor. Shell Bleiweiss http://www.shell-bleiweiss.com

    You haven't told us enough about your business, but the general rule is that EPA has the right to inspect a business activity if a permit is involved and not (without your permission or a court order) if not. You should consult with a local, knowledgeable environmental attorney. Shell Bleiweiss http://www.shell-bleiweiss.com

    How much do they say she is owed? Does she have a lease with Devon Oil? Once I know more information I can probably find you someone in Wyoming to help. Shell Bleiweiss Law Offices of Shell J.
