Concept of Due Diligence

The precise origins of due diligence are unclear. The concept of diligence goes back to the Roman law concept of diligentia, distinguishing two main types of diligence: diligentia quam suis rebus, or the care that an ordinary person exercises in managing his or her own affairs, and diligentia exactissima or diligentia boni patrisfamilia, a more exacting type of care exercised by the head of a family.
