“Legal Due Diligence Issues in Real Estate Purchase Transactions”

The Real Estate Finance Journal By Everett S. Ward

Below is an excerpt:

The primary purpose of due diligence is to obtain information, and the extent and type of due diligence that purchaser's counsel may undertake will depend on, among other factors:

(i) the risk profile and business objectives of the purchaser;

(ii) the type of real estate asset involved;

(iii) the time frame for completion of the transaction;

(iv) the cost of conducting due diligence; and

(v) whether the purchaser will obtain third party financing either pre-transaction or post-transaction closing.
