Frequently Asked Questions
Is a Qualified Intermediary (AKA accommodator or QI) needed?
Yes. To avoid a taxable sale of the Relinquished Property, the use of an intermediary in virtually every 1031 transaction should be utilized. In addition, the Exchanger must enter into written agreements with the QI before the Relinquished Property is sold.
What is Like Kind Property? Can I sell my rental house and buy a 4plex? Can I sell my vacant lot and buy an office building?
Yes, you can buy ANY kind of business or investment real estate, anywhere in the US. The “like-kind” requirement does not mean selling and buying the same exact type of property. In an IRC §1031 transaction, you can exchange real property for virtually any other real property in the United States, as long as the property is held for productive use in a trade or business or for investment purposes. You can sell a rental house and buy apartments, commercial, industrial, mini storage, vacant land, agricultural, etc.
Can I get an extension on the 45-day identification period for my 1031 Exchange?
No, unless you are eligible for an extension due to a federally declared disaster, the IRS doesn’t have any provisions for extensions or exceptions – not even to the next business day if the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday. The best way to get more time is to start looking for your Replacement Property well before the closing of your sale property or to extend the closing date on your sale property.
Do I have to buy from the properties I’ve identified in my 1031 Exchange?
Yes. During the 45 days you can change what you’ve identified, but once your identification period has expired, you must buy from only that list. No substitutions or changes after day 45. The rules under section 1031 are very strict.
Can I use money from my 1031 Exchange to improve the new Replacement Property after I buy it?
The day you take title to the property is the end of the exchange for that property. If you have cash left over, that is taxable boot. There is something called a Build-to-Suit or Improvement Exchange, where we, as the intermediary, take title to the property to make the improvements before you take ownership. This is also a more expensive and complicated transaction.

Patty was great in helping us...
“Patty was great in helping us know those complexities and walk us through the process with great clarity. This was our first time doing a 1031 exchange and had a general knowledge of how it would go but there were complexities along the way that we didn’t know. Patty was great in helping us know those complexities and walk us through the process with great clarity. There were times in our deal when things might have fallen through but Patty was able to offer her experience ideas on how the deal could still work (reverse exchange). In the end it went through the way we had hoped so it was more straightforward. All said, I would highly recommend her and her team to anyone looking for help in the process and next time we have an opportunity we will have her help us again.”

It is obvious that their reputation is well known; when you inform the escrow officer that the transaction is going to be an exchange and IPX will be the accommodator there is always a sigh of relief. They are the company to work with!”
