Real Estate Transaction Risks FAQ

Environmental due diligence can help protect against future liabilities by identifying potential risks and allowing buyers to negotiate appropriate contractual protections, such as indemnities or escrow accounts.  

Environmental due diligence can also help buyers develop proactive strategies for managing environmental risks and ensuring ongoing compliance with regulations. 

When selecting a provider, you should look for consultants with extensive experience in environmental due diligence, a track record of success, and a deep understanding of the relevant regulations and industry standards.  

You should also consider the provider’s ability to tailor their services to the specific needs of your potential transactions and to communicate findings and recommendations clearly and effectively. 

As a seller, you can prepare by gathering and organising all relevant environmental documents, such as previous assessments, permits, and compliance records. You should also disclose any known environmental issues upfront and consider conducting your own pre-sale assessments with our expert consultants to identify and address potential concerns proactively. 

Common environmental risks in real estate transactions include soil and groundwater contamination, asbestos-containing materials, lead-based paint, mould, and wetlands or protected habitats. Other risks may include noncompliance with environmental permits, energy efficiency regulations, and waste management requirements. 

Environmental factors can significantly impact the value of a real estate investment in several ways. Unidentified contamination can lead to expensive cleanup costs, legal liabilities, and project delays. Noncompliance with environmental regulations can result in fines and reputational damage. Properties with strong environmental performance and sustainability features can command higher rents and sale prices. 

Environmental due diligence identifies potential liabilities and risks associated with a property, such as contamination, regulatory compliance issues, and environmental hazards.  

By thoroughly assessing these factors, buyers can make informed decisions, negotiate better terms, and avoid costly surprises down the line.
