Section 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges of Real Estate

Simultaneous forward exchange not involving a construction contract

Information on 1031 exchanges $800 for first property sold plus $250 for each additional property sold or and for each property purchased.

Each separate exchange will be treated as a separate exchange agreement.  For example: If you exchange property "A" for property "B", and then exchange property "C" for property "D", this will be treated as two separate exchanges and you will be charged two separate fees. This is in contrast with exchanging property "A" for "B" and "C" which would be one transaction for exchange purposes.

Delayed forward exchange not involving a construction contract

$1,000 for first property sold plus $250 for each additional property sold or and for each property purchased.

Each separate exchange will be treated as a separate exchange agreement.  For example: If you exchange property "A" for property "B", and then exchange property "C" for property "D", this will be treated as two separate exchanges and you will be charged two separate fees. This is in contrast with exchanging property "A" for "B" and "C" which would be one transaction for exchange purposes.
