Due Diligence refers to a period of time (as defined in a homebuying contract) wherein a buyer can examine or otherwise consider a property for which they're under contract - and pull out of the transaction if they find something unsatisfactory or undisclosed. Note that the term 'due diligence' is general and can refer to any period of time where an asset for sale is examined.
