Illiquid Investments – 1031 exchanges are commonly offered through private placement offerings and are illiquid securities. There is no secondary market for these investments.

Reduction or Elimination of Monthly Cash Flow Distributions – Like any investment in real estate, if a property unexpectedly loses tenants or sustains substantial damage, there is potential for suspension of cash flow distributions.

Fees/Expenses – Investors’ returns may be affected by the costs associated with the transaction. and may outweigh the tax benefits.

Investigating Potential Lawsuits 

The White Law Group is investigating the liability that FINRA registered brokerage firms may have for improperly recommending high-risk investments to investors.

Despite?the risks of investing in DSTs, brokerage firms continue to push this type of investment because of the high commissions associated with their sale and creation.

Fortunately, FINRA does provide for an arbitration forum for investors to resolve disputes if a broker or brokerage firm makes an?unsuitable investment recommendation?or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment. It is possible that they could be found liable for investment losses in a FINRA arbitration claim.
