Color Pictures of Property

Due Diligence Guidelines Contents

Pictures of the property that are illustrative of the transaction need to be submitted. Pictures should clearly illustrate the subject property and also the surrounding properties illustrating how they relate to the subject. This is helpful in assessing the proposed transaction.

For example - For a demolition transaction the pictures should clearly substantiate the need to demolish the structure and should not leave the viewer with a question of whether the structure really is deteriorated to the point of requiring demolition.
