This webinar will comprehensively examine how the new Corporate Transparency Act (CTA) reporting requirements apply to real estate investors. Our panel of veteran real estate professionals will discuss the new reporting requirements as they apply to real estate owners and related entities. The panel will recommend specific actions individuals and entities should take to facilitate compliance with the new cumbersome act.


Deciphering the reporting requirements of the CTA is challenging for all beneficial owners or potential beneficial owners. This Act's costs and administrative burdens are compounded for real estate investors. Determining who "exercises substantial control" under new and vague guidelines is particularly difficult for ownership structures that are often tiered and influenced by investors. Further, state and federal statutes regulating beneficial ownership may restrict or regulate a contemplated real estate transaction.

Whether real estate is held in an SPE, JV, LLC, or even an HOA, these entities need to take concrete steps to ensure compliance with the CTA, or otherwise, they could be subject to stiff penalties ($500 a day and even imprisonment) for ignoring or being unaware of the new reporting requirements. Additionally, these entities need to understand how the CTA relates to CFIUS, AFIDA, and other real estate beneficial ownership regulations: each of these regimes have penalties for non-compliance. Brokers, agents, developers, property managers, investors, and others must grasp the new beneficial ownership requirements as they apply to real estate investors.

Listen as our panel of real estate transaction attorneys delves into the beneficial ownership reporting requirements for lenders, buyers, and sellers of real estate.
