Sale and purchase

Due diligence

Do buyers usually carry out due diligence?



Yes, usually before the execution of the sale and purchase agreement. For a single asset transaction due diligence normally takes around two to three weeks. In particular, investigations include verification of the title and encumbrances, leases and the zoning and planning situation.

It is common to agree on an exclusivity period for the buyer to carry out due diligence.
