It is not uncommon to see clients holding real property in structures that are “non-ideal” when considering the client’s objectives regarding the real property and the pros and cons of the existing holding structure. This article examines some of the issues that should be worked through when determining an ideal structure through which to purchase real property, in addition to reviewing some case studies that involved a reformulating of “non-ideal” holding structures.
The article also reviews some of the implications that arise when real property is held within a deceased estate environment, in particular, what the consequences are when real property is bequeathed to a non-resident beneficiary, in addition to reviewing whether real property can be developed inside an estate environment.
