Technical due diligence
A DETAILED ANALYSIS BEFORE MAKING DECISIONS
Technical Due Diligence is an independent audit to analyse the most relevant aspects of the state of an asset (land and buildings) in order to detect present and future risks, and generate recommendations for action. The report’s timeline for drafting, its level of intensity and its content are all adapted to the needs of each operation and client. The reports, applicable to all types of assets in any phase of development, cover all aspects ranging from legal, documentary and planning to structural and accessibility. For their preparation, our technicians collect information, visit the asset, perform data collection, check compliance with applicable regulations and make the necessary consultations with the public authorities and supply companies.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Any client who needs to know the current state of an asset when making decisions on procurement, purchase and sale, auction, or office transfer processes, among others.
DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN INVESTMENT FUNDS AND PRIVATE INVESTORS
PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMPANIES
REAL ESTATE COMPANIES AND DEVELOPERS
CONSULTANCIES AND LAW FIRMS
When can a DUE DILIGENCE be helpful?
In the process of executing guarantees concerning a failed developer loan, it is necessary to have as much information as possible to help make decisions. In our Technical Due Diligence reports, we provide a direct approach in handling the current state of the property, debts and the legal situation with suppliers, municipalities and public entities, the status of energy provider procedures, terms and costs of termination, etc.
CHANGE OF OFFICE
When a company decides to change offices in order to increase or decrease its usable space, improve location, reduce rental costs, etc., it is convenient to have an independent analysis that examines different options, depending on the requirements of the company. Things need to be checked like if the building has documentary authorisation to technically allow its activity, if the appropriate maintenance has been performed and with which operators, compliance regarding accessibility and other applicable requirements, etc.
DEED IN LIEU
In cases where a financial institution decides to proceed with the option of deed in lieu, it is necessary for an expert to collaborate by issuing a Due Diligence to check the status of the property, and, above all, to check any documentation to be provided during this process by the previous developer to the notary. Only this way can a prospective buyer continue with the activity with all guarantees and available information.
Companies that own or manage land need to know the condition of the ground that they have allocated or plan to allocate. For certain assets that may be the object of an investment or disinvestment, the physical identification of assets and a planning, legal and market analysis, etc. are entirely necessary prior to making decisions.
