Many buy, sell, or develop real property for a living, but all property changes hands sooner or later. In 2009, environmental issues have to be addressed in most transactions -- even if you are just establishing that environmental problems are unlikely. And in challenging economic times, it is even more important to avoid unanticipated costs.

Environmental legal liabilities continue to be asserted regularly by governments and neighbors -- and sometimes the party who just closed the deal with you. Fortunately, the once confusing paths to identifying and limiting liabilities are now clearer roads, but you have to get on the right roads and stay there.

This seminar will address these topics and questions.

Why environmental due diligence?

Is due diligence different for "distressed" properties?

How much diligence is due?

How not to do a transaction!

What are the recent VRAP changes?
