Due Diligence

What is Due Diligence?
Due diligence is the term used to express the process where one party attempts to find information about the business belonging to another party. It is the process allowing you to investigate the details of the business you are thinking of buying or to investigate the details of a particular situation before you enter into an agreement.

Due diligence involves doing a little homework. This homework involves checking out the business you are interested in purchasing, or the matter you may agree to.

Due diligence is the legal term professionals use, but if it is to be defined simply, it can be said that due diligence allows the person to investigate the affairs of a business they are thinking of buying. This is to see if it is the type of business they want and if it is worth the asking price.

If you want to find out everything about another business before entering into a binding contract, involving a change of ownership or some other binding arrangement, make sure you carry out this due diligence process before signing on the dotted line.
