However, in absence of the Executor, the beneficiaries under the Will can also seek probate. MyAdvo will help you draft and file application for probate through an expert lawyer.

Property Due Diligence to Minimize Risks

Before investing in a property, it is highly recommended to get a due-diligence conducted of the property to minimize risks. MyAdvo can assist in conducting due diligence of the property through expert diligence professionals.

 

Types of Due Diligence

Depending upon the nature of the transaction and the property involved, due diligence can be either:

1.    Full Search (tenure of search is usually between past 30 years to 99 years)

  • Recommended for sale, resale, long term lease transactions and transactions that involve obtaining financial loans against the property.

2.    Limited Search (tenure of search is restricted to past 15 years)

  • Recommended for short term rental/lease transactions.

The diligence for both the methods involves a rigorous search of all components of a real estate property and carried out comprehensively. The only difference being the tenure for which the search is done.
