There is not one-size-fits-all recommendation for what type of legal structure investors should use to hold their ownership interest in commercial real estate. Rather, the selected structure will depend on an individual investor’s unique situation, including his or her ultimate goals, tolerance for risk, and time horizon. In addition, when investors consider whether to hold property in their own names, in a trust, in a partnership, a corporation or another legal entity, they should recognize that each structure comes with different levels of tax reporting obligations and exposure to income and estate tax
Determining the best legal structure for investment in U.S. commercial real estate investment is something best decided with the benefit of legal advisors and experienced commercial real estate professionals.
