New Practical Law Commercial Real Estate resources: Due diligence

Content updates

Practical Law Commercial Real Estate has recently published a suite of more than ten resources in its new due diligence topic area, to assist property lawyers with due diligence on standalone commercial property acquisitions as well as due diligence related to corporate transactions.

Due diligence is a critical step for a purchaser who proposes to acquire commercial real estate. It allows the purchaser to verify the characteristics of the property and determine whether the property meets its investment expectations. However, the due diligence process can often be challenging from a legal and practical perspective, depending on factors such as:

  • The scope of the due diligence exercise.
  • The amount of time for the purchaser to carry out its due diligence investigations before exchange of the transaction documents.
  • Other commercial factors such as the purchaser's risk appetite and intended use for the target property.

As a result, the due diligence process generally requires careful consideration and appropriate planning between the purchaser and its legal team.

To assist the purchaser and its lawyers to carry out due diligence for standalone property acquisitions as well as broader corporate transactions (such as share or business acquisitions), Practical Law Commercial Real Estate has recently published a suite of over ten carefully curated resources in its new due diligence topic area. These resources include:
