SmartStop Self Storage REIT Suspends SRP, featured by top securities fraud attorneys, The White Law Group

The White Law Group is investigating securities claims involving broker-dealers recommendation of Smartstop Self Storage REIT Inc.

Are you concerned about your investment in SmartStop Self Storage REIT? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA Dispute Resolution claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment. 

According to an 8-K filing with the SEC last week, the board of directors of SmartStop Self Storage REIT, Inc. suspended its share redemption program (SRP) once again. It has also suspended its distribution reinvestment plan (DRP) as it reviews alternatives to “provide liquidity to its stockholders.” 

The company notes in the filing that distributions for the month of March, payable on April 15, 2022, will be payable in cash and that redemption requests made for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 will not be honored.  

Prior to March 7, 2022, the SRP had been partially suspended, except for repurchases sought in connection with a stockholder’s death, qualifying disability, confinement to a long-term care facility or other exigent circumstances.

Did your Financial Advisor Recommend Investing in Non-Traded REITs?

 The Trouble with Non-Traded REITs 

Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, non-traded REITS, are considerably more complex and involve a high degree of risk. Unfortunately, many investors were not made adequately aware of the risks and liquidity problems associated with REITs. 

The White Law Group has represented numerous investors in claims against the brokerage firm that recommended non-traded REITs to  investors. 

Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor. Recommendations should be in line with the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience. 

Broker dealers that fail to adequately disclose risks or make unsuitable investment recommendations can be held liable for investment losses.
