Landlord Soil Contamination

I own an auto repair business in New

Jersey and we have been closed

down for about 3 months due to a

soil contamination problem. We lease

the land and building from a landlord.

The EPA sent us a letter detailing the

cleanup and insuring us it wouldn’t

take more than a few days. It seems

as if the landlord dragged his feet

cleaning up the soil causing us to

lose earnings as well as potential

new customers. Do I have a

negligence case against him because

he did nothing to fix the problems for

numerous months? Thanks for your

help.
