A Finding of Suitability to Transfer (FOST) is used where property is transferred. Typically, the property is uncontaminated or all cleanup has been achieved. An early transfer can be accomplished if the property is not cleaned up and is referred to as a "covenant authority". When the covenant authority is used, some restrictions will apply as to how the new owner can use the property.

Completed FOSTs are given below.
