Environmental Due Diligence is the process by which environmental concerns, both present and historical, are researched and documented for a piece of real estate. The Environmental Due Diligence process is usually initiated as a prerequisite for a property transfer or bank financing in an effort to document and explore known environmental concerns and, more importantly, to reveal any unknown environmental risk prior to any transfer or lending activity.
The Environmental Due Diligence process is typically initiated by conducting a Phase I ESA or a less comprehensive approach such as a Transaction Screen or Desktop Review. If the Phase I ESA identifies any environmental concerns, additional due diligence in the form of collecting subsurface samples (soil, soil-gas, groundwater) may be necessary to determine the extent of any potential contamination (see Phase II ESA, Subsurface Site Assessment).
