Site documentation is useful for developers, lawyers, lenders, real estate agents, land owners, purchasers and others involved in real estate transactions. These types of records are a vital part of conducting a due diligence search. For example, they could include:
- Site profiles which vendors are required to provide to prospective buyers if a property has been used for the commercial or industrial purposes listed in Schedule 2 of the Contaminated Sites Regulation
- Documents that explain the liability exposure for various parties involved in a real estate transaction
