Benefits of Environmental Due Diligence

Why is Environmental Due Diligence Important?


In commercial real estate transactions, environmental due diligence is performed to identify environmental conditions related to the property involved. Many properties have environmental issues, and without performing environmental due diligence a purchaser and its lender may unintentionally risk loss of property value or liability for remediation costs.


The First Step

Identifying the appropriate level of environmental due diligence for a transaction is the first step in the process. The Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is generally the first part of the due diligence process to identify environmental risk and minimize the purchaser's and lender's liability.
