The replacement property is built-to-suit, or is further improved or altered, etc., to the specifications of the exchanger.In a construction exchange, Xchange Solutions usually acquires the replacement property, causes the improvements to be built during its ownership, and conveys the improved property to the exchanger.Examples include: Back to Top There are several important benefits of delayed exchanges: Delayed exchanges allow the exchanger additional time to find and close the purchase of replacement property.
The building is done in accordance with the building specifications outlined in the purchase contract, and/or escrow instructions, prior to the substitution of Xchange Solutions as the buyer.
The exchanger approves all work done before disbursement of funds by Xchange Solutions and exchangers may use the contractor of their choice as long as they are not a "disqualified" person under the regulations.
This may allow some time for work to begin on construction of improvement on the replacement property.
Property "to be produced" in a construction exchange, which is not completed within the 180-day Exchange Period, must be part of the standing structure to be considered real property under local law.
The exchanger can consider market opportunities rather than feel pressured to immediately identify and purchase all replacement property.
A word of caution: the 45-day Identification period is probably the most difficult rule to come out the final regulations.Delayed exchange (also called a "Starker" or "deferred" exchange), you convey title to the relinquished property up to 180 days before acquiring title to the replacement property.Previously the IRS held that qualifying exchanges must be simultaneous.The essence of such a trade is a reciprocal and interdependent transfer of one property for another, as opposed to a simple sale and repurchase.Back to Top While transactions may vary, the basic Xchange Solutions exchange usually proceeds like this: First, the seller ("exchanger") of the property to be exchanged, ("relinquished property"), finds a buyer to purchase his/her property.If each party completed a delayed exchange, both could exchange "even or up" in equity and debt and affect a completely tax-deferred scenario for both parties. Fully tax-deferred exchanges are effected when you properly identify and receive like-kind qualifying property of equal or greater value, subject to equal or greater debt, without any actual or constructive receipt of cash or other non like-kind property.
