Due Diligence & Closing
Due Diligence

 

After Milan’s initial underwriting, and a successful negotiation has led to favorable terms for the purchase, our acquisition department engages in due diligence. The following is a summary list of the due diligence responsibilities Milan assumes:

  • Review all title records and surveys

  • Evaluate all financial documents including historical and projected operating statements and budgets

  • A complete examination of all leases and license agreements

  • Study all vendor contracts and expenses of the property

  • Inspections of all structural, mechanical, and other physical elements of a property

  • Examine all environmental, geotechnical, and other reports affecting the site

  • Evaluate all CC&Rs and other governing documents for the site

  • Review all loan documents affecting the process of the purchase

  • Generate financial models usually utilizing the Argus discounted cash flow program, illustrating the return expectations for the asset along with parameters and assumptions for those returns

  • Provide additional due diligence analysis complete with opportunities, risks, game plans, and strategy

Additionally, Milan takes the initiative in performing tenant interviews, strategizing with well-respected leasing agents, and maintaining contact with the seller’s representatives.
