The Act requires that all property on which a landfill is or has been located be properly identified. It also requires the Environmental Protection Division of the Department of Natural Resources to maintain certain landfill records. The Act mandates that deeds conveying an interest in land previously used as a commercial landfill include proper notice and other pertinent information related to the operation of the landfill. The Act imposes liability on the seller of real property if he willfully violates the Code provisions. Further, the Act creates a civil remedy for a purchaser of such land if the purchaser suffers damage or loss as a result of the sale.
