The successful purchase was completed in 2020 by The KanAm Grund Group, for a special real estate fund for a confidential sales price.

Our Role:

Our assessment comprised a desk based review of the available environmental information, both current and historical, from a range of sources including Ordnance Survey and British Geological Survey, SEPA, Local Authorities and public health agencies.

The findings of the assessment were utilised to provide of advice on the significance of identified risks, the potential for environmental liabilities to arise for the site owner, and recommendations for any further investigations or actions to clarify, mitigate or manage risks.

We worked alongside the wider Due Diligence Team to provide succinct and relevant information to the purchaser to advise their investment decision.


The final report enabled the purchaser to make an informed decision on their potential purchase, with the Due Diligence process completed, the transaction successfully completed in 2020.
