Trusts and 1031 Exchanges: An In-Depth Overview

Trusts and 1031 Exchanges

Trusts are often involved in Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”) Section 1031 exchanges. For example, the relinquished property may be held in a revocable living trust that was formed for estate planning purposes. Or the replacement property may consist of an interest in a Delaware statutory trust or an Illinois land trust. All of these trusts, though serving different purposes, have certain common characteristics, and follow certain rules. Understanding these characteristics and rules can help overcome the challenges presented by trusts. Read more…

Asset Preservation’s 25th Anniversary!

"It is with great pleasure (and a bit of shock) that I announce API’s 25th anniversary! In 1990, three of us started API as a subsidiary of Placer Title Company in Northern California. This was when there was very little 1031 activity compared to the activity we see now. In our desire to grow nationally, and to provide greater security for client exchange funds, we successfully sold the company to Stewart Title Company in 1993.

This is where the memory gets blurry. I spent approximately 12 years traveling the country. I attended countless Stewart conferences, meeting the incredible Stewart family of associates, from coast to coast. Many of those friendships continue to this day. I gave more presentations, classes and lectures on 1031 exchanges than I can remember, while meeting outstanding people with whom I still have the pleasure of working. Expanding API nationally also allowed me to see much of our beautiful country, an opportunity I most likely would not have had otherwise. It was the work of the young, and I highly doubt that I could repeat that performance today…"
