Buying Investment Real Estate Privacy
A marketing "secret" purchase of investment real estate, intended to "flip" the property, as usual, there is no secret. However, it is worth reviewing here, so you will not end up in a relationship you do not want. Many real estate investment enthusiasts to promote the concept of buying real estate to an organized legal entity in the name of, rather than their own name. One purpose of such a structure is to facilitate easy resale of the property. This objective is reported to have been transferred through the sale of ownership entities (LLCs, corporations or trusts) without the traditional title search, title insurance, documentation and other processes. That sounds good, but is it true? I understand a good desire to make the buyer's life easy. However, a typical "physical sale" involves the elements that may make it a problem.
The first question is the possible sale of the entity. Unless this is done correctly, the seller may actually be selling securities. Securities law is the management of selling securities. The shares, bonds and stocks of a limited liability company are generally considered securities. In the case we are discussing, the seller must comply with the securities laws. Penalties for violations of these laws are more punitive than those that undermine most real estate laws. In addition to securities analysis, there are issues of responsibility.
The Owner shall be personally liable for the debt in respect of all available property interests. This means that the new owner will inevitably need to sign any relevant debt, assuming that the existing lender will allow that it is not a given. In addition, the seller is difficult to obtain from the lenders release. It is important to note that this type of sales may still trigger the "for sale" clause in the mortgage. This will allow the lender to allocate 100% of the balance due and payable. Please read these terms carefully.
There is also the problem of entity operating liabilities. Simply put, if you buy an operating entity, you will inherit all of its operating liabilities. If the entity is in debt when you buy the debt, you owe the debt. This is true even if the debt does not belong directly to the property you want to have. This may be the case with loans, such as letters of credit, credit cards and open accounts with the vendor. In most cases, it is difficult to understand all the debt owed by the entity, so if you buy a business, be careful to identify and record all the liabilities you bear and make the seller liable to any other person
Like many things in real estate, this concept is expressed as a safe, secure, and easy-to-use strategy to facilitate business. In the real world, it's usually not. However, it is used with a certain degree of frequency. The reason you do not hear more information is that the parties involved usually have never touched any matter of litigation. In most cases, things just follow Hoyle. If the money to do, then everyone is happy. If money is lost, then most people will be hit and accept life. In fact, you may never be caught, but you can not use this concept with impunity
Like all elements in real estate, you have the obligation to be honest and open to yourself and those of you doing business. You need to understand all the possibilities of the deal and make your decisions judiciously. If you want to buy or sell an entity, and thus a property, be careful. The more you know the better. This tool is not as secure as some of the ones you believe to the buyer or seller. If we can help, we will be happy. Good luck.
