Yes the owner can clean whatever the would like but in the end, if the ground is contaminated, there needs to be proper documentation that the ground was cleaned and serviced by a liscensed and insured company therefore come closing time, there is paperwork and documentation stating that all issues where fixed.

Also if you buy a house with an oil tank or you decide to sell your home with an oil tank make sure there is insurance on the oil tank. The insurance should also be transferable.

to a degree, but this needs a special cleaning company that can come in and take care of this problem, the cost can be over $5000. Hope my answer was helpful, wish you the best!
