It is important to know that most heating oil tanks are not regulated. However, if a spill occurs or the tank leaks the resulting contamination is regulated and a cleaned up may be required. Furthermore, it is also important that the closure or removal of any tank be properly documented. If and when the property is sold these closure documents will be important.
