Doing Business records the procedures necessary for a business to purchase a property from another business and to transfer the property title to the buyer’s name. The process starts with obtaining the necessary documents, such as a copy of the seller’s title, and conducting due diligence if required. The transaction is considered complete when it is opposable to third parties and when the buyer can use the property, use it as collateral for a bank loan or resell it.
