Real estate purchases by international investors can be exceptionally complicated transactions. It is critical for a foreign investor to have a skilled attorney who understands how these laws work. Unfortunately, many investors sustain financial losses without the aid of an experienced international real estate investment lawyer with an in-depth understanding of real estate investment laws in the United States.
Commercial real estate transactions are any transaction between two or more people that involves the sale, purchase, or leasing of property for commercial purposes. Our real estate attorneys have extensive experience in real estate transactions including:
We have worked successfully with developers, owners, and operators throughout New York City. Our real estate lawyers in NYC are familiar with the complicated rules and regulations that surround transactions both internationally and locally. We can protect your interests during the entire transaction. Our team can assist international property investors and developers at every stage of the transaction.
Many commercial real estate deals involve more than just buying a property. Commercial investors need to consider whether the property can generate sufficient revenue from tenants and improvements in order to earn a decent return. Investors must consider environmental issues that could affect property value, such as zoning restrictions that limit how the property can be used, unlevered cash flow, and internal rates of return. This means that you need to be more thorough in your research before closing the deal.
An NYC attorney for international investments who is familiar with the procedures and rules involved in commercial transactions can help you protect your rights and ensure that your transaction goes smoothly.
Over the last few years, foreign investments in U.S. real estate have increased dramatically, especially in New York City. The real estate market in New York is expected to continue growing. Foreign investors are flocking to New York City in order to purchase real estate. However, few people realize the serious tax and legal implications of investing in U.S. real property without adequate planning.
When purchasing New York City property and creating a holding structure, there are four main considerations:
Problems often arise when the property is sold or after the property passed through an estate, and the owner/beneficiary then has to pay a large tax bill.
If the foreign client invests in NYC real estate property, the combined Federal, New York State, and New York City taxes on the gains could reach 65%. However, with proper structuring, capital gain taxes on the sale of New York property can be reduced to no more than 20%.
Good planning and advice on real estate transactions can significantly reduce or eliminate U.S. taxes associated with the ownership and sale of U.S. real estate.
A client’s future goals, country of residence, and other factors will all influence the appropriate real estate holding arrangement. Speaking to an experienced foreign investment lawyer may be able to help the client understand their rights in the real estate transaction and help them make the best out of their purchase or sale.
