Due Diligence Involving Commercial Real Estate 

Buying and selling a commercial property?  Do you know what Due Diligence is? Informed buyers and sellers do and it will be done during the transaction and it will lengthen the process regardless if an environmental issue is found.  When should a Phase I being completed?  Did you know that a Phase I can take 4 to 6 weeks on average to complete when there are files on the site at the state level?   Many Phase I's are  given to the client, incomplete as the client needs the Phase I by a set date and not all research requests have been returned.  This is what happens when there are files at a government agency and the files have to be pulled from an archive which can take 4 weeks.   Yes, public record requests must be returned to the requester within 10 days (meaning you are notified if they have any files).  But if there are volumes of files, well the agency can delay providing the files for weeks, which delays completing the Phase I.
