What Is Environmental Due Diligence and Why Is It Important?

What is Environmental Due Diligence?

At Mill Creek Environmental, property transaction due diligence is an investigation which we undertake where we ensure our client is not engaging in a transaction that may have potential environmental contamination or adjoining property issues. These can include problems such as unseen soil or groundwater contamination. It is an essential service for anyone who is buying property, whether it be business or residential.

We offer many services allowing our clients to meet the environmental due diligence criteria to satisfy federal and state requirements. The depth and breadth of an environmental Phase I Assessment should be determined by the past and present uses of the subject parcel of land and adjoining land parcels.

Why do you need Due Diligence?

Before you start your journey with your property, it is important to be fully aware of any issues with the property which may arise from environmental due diligence. This way you can deal with them early on before they cause a much larger problem. It’s important to know the environmental risks and liabilities before you follow through with your property transaction. The last thing you need is to find out about any potential issues after your due diligence period has expired and you have already transacted on the property.
