Can I do a 1031 trade for a just-constructed property to be used for rental purposes?

November 13, 2002

From:  Kinne
Date:  Thu, 10 Oct 2002

Would it yet be possible to do a 1031 trade with a rental property for a just-constructed property (residence not built by me, the potential buyer) to be used for rental purposes? Or would it have had to be rented already?

Hello Kinne,

Yes, provided you donít use the property as a personal residence and start renting it shortly after the exchange is completed. (The replacement property can even have been someone elseís principal residence and converted by the buyer to a rental after the exchange is completed.)

Good luck!
