Environmental Due Diligence

In commercial real estate transactions, environmental due diligence is often a requirement for buying, selling  or rehabilitating property. While it is easy for buyers and sellers to treat environmental due diligence as a box to be checked in a transaction, it can be helpful to step back and consider how important due diligence is to protecting stakeholders in a real estate deal. Environmental due diligence typically starts with an ESA Phase 1 report, which is a visual inspection and review of historical property records to determine if any hazardous materials might be at play in a property.  In addition to the ESA Phase 1 report, lenders, insurers, investors, or other stakeholders may require other due diligence reports. Additional due diligence reports include: a Hazardous Materials Survey, Property Condition Assessment (PCA), a Probable Maximum Loss Report, American Land Title Association Survey, Subsurface Soil Examination. Some, or all of these reports can be bundled with the ESA Phase 1.
