Due diligence in real estate is a lengthy, time-consuming procedure that can cost a lot of money. Buyers should carefully examine the zoning regulations, potential liens, and existing structures to determine the possibility of liability and costs. This may include interviewing key employees and analyzing the record-keeping system and assessing compliance requirements. In the past, much of this work had to be done face-to-face at the location of the seller, however, with advances in technology, much of it can be done online.
