Have you done your Due Diligence?


due dil•i•gence

[due diligence]
reasonable steps taken by a person in order to satisfy a legal requirement, especially in buying or selling something.

Unforeseen setbacks can postpone a project causing delays
for weeks or even months.

Issues not evaluated and considered in a budget or a schedule, applicable policies focused on legal and environmental issues for a site can potentially cause the postponement or even closure of a project. A full understanding of the existing project surrounding and of the environmental regulations and constraints specific to a project site are key to the successful crafting and development of a property. The Altum Group is well-versed in Southern California Real Estate, local, state and federal policies, and programs. We are able to guide developers, contractors, real estate professionals, and buyers through all stages of a project.

The Altum group provides Due Diligence services across Southern California, from the coastal areas to inland deserts. Our staff works with local regulatory agencies, municipalities, service providers, and construction companies to help projects move forward without unforeseen postponement.
