Navigating the Brier Patch


Jump to...


Abstract: The investment funds created in “like-kind” exchange transactions under §1031 have increasingly provided a valuable capital source to real estate operators deriving their primary capital from non-§1031 sources. The resulting ownership structure presents numerous financing, economic, legal, liability and operating issues and challenges that would not otherwise be a factor if §1031 funds were not a contributing source of capital to the underlying transactions. This article identifies these issues and discusses available mechanisms for addressing them.
