The umbrella partnership real estate investment trust (UPREIT) structure presents a unique opportunity for owners of real property to diversify their holdings, maintain a tax-efficient source of cash flow, and transition out of the day-to-day activities of a lessor. In order to provide for an efficient transaction and avoid unplanned results, property owners need to have a working knowledge of the UPREIT structure and the considerations that need to be addressed when engaging in a transaction with an UPREIT.

Learning objectives   

At the conclusion of this session, you will be able to:

  • Articulate the ownership chain of an UPREIT structure.
  • Explain the tax consequences resulting from contributing real estate to an operating partnership in exchange for cash and operating partnership (O.P.) units.
  • Articulate the agreement provisions that should be considered to optimize the post-contribution tax results.
  • Describe the complications that arise when attempting to use O.P. units to complete a like-kind exchange.
