It takes a lot to do some deals today!  Our client  had a rental house that he intended to exchange into a new buildiing for his business.  The new building was in escrow though there was no action on the rental house.  We were not comfortable with the potential to sell the property in time for the closing, even using a reverse exchange.

After reviewing the objectives and the options available, it was decided the purchase would move forward without being involved with an exchange at that time.  A year and a half later the rental finally sold and an exchange was structured for improvements on the new property.

The improvements satisfied the exchange requirements and in turn our exchangor paid no tax and had a beautiful new facility.

The Details of the Deal

A year and a half ago a prospective client was referred in to us for a Reverse Improvement Exchange.  After reviewing the client’s objectives, status of the properties involved and the nature of the market at that time it became apparent to us the timelines would be very difficult, if not impossible to work with.

Instead of structuring the exchange as a Reverse Improvement Exchange as originally planned we proposed structuring a Leasehold Improvement Exchange when the relinquished property had a sale in the future.  Our assumptions were correct and nearly eighteen months later the rental house was in escrow.  The property was closed and roughly $250k in exchange proceeds were received.  Improvements on the replacement property totaled many times the value and equity of the relinquished property and our strategy would clearly work.

The sale of the relinquished property was structured as a basic delayed exchange and a lease for the replacement property was drawn.  We created a new EAT (exchange accommodation titleholder-LLC) to enter into the 30-year lease.  The EAT entered into contracts for the improvements and the $250k of work was completed, satisfying the 1031 exchange.

Leasehold Improvement Exchanges are terrific solutions for exchangors wishing to improve property that is already owned by the exchangor.  Call us today for details on this powerful tool, we are the guys with the answers…
