MSI has provided a range of services including due diligence and real estate assessments to multinational clients from the financial services sector.
Real Estate Due Diligence for a Private Equity Fund
The management of a European private equity fund was considering purchasing large tracts of land in order to expand the operations of one of its investments. In order to comprehensively evaluate possible acquisition targets, the firm required more details on the current land ownership, the legal considerations for real estate transactions involving foreigners, and other legal-related aspects.
Leveraging a team of local nationals with real estate expertise in Dhaka, MSI was able to identify the current owners of the parcels of land, identify potential legal and statutory impediments to completing the transaction, and recommend courses of action for pursuing the acquisition of the properties.
During the due diligence policy, MSI discovered several liens that had been placed against one of the target properties. On behalf of the client, MSI consultants engaged the lien holders and negotiated an agreement to satisfy the claims. The fund was able to successfully complete the acquisition of the properties while avoiding any unforeseen obstacles.
