Investor Alert: Triple Net (NNN) TIC Investments

(Last Updated On: August 4, 2016)

Have you suffered investment losses in a Triple Net TIC investment?  If so, The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses through FINRA arbitration.

The White Law Group is investigating potential securities fraud claims against the broker-dealers that improperly or unsuitably recommended these TIC investments to its clients.

A TIC investment is when a property is sold to multiple investors who then own fractional interests in the property as co-owners.  The co-owners are allowed their share of the “pro rata” share of the net income (or expenses), appreciation, and share of the proceeds at the sale of the property.  Tenants in common investors are not involved in the day to day management of the property but do retain certain other rights regarding the management of the property.

Due to the relatively high interest or dividend offered by TIC investments, retired investors are often attracted to these products.  Unfortunately, these type of investments are generally unsuitable for retired or income seeking investors.  First, the investments themselves are unsuitably risky because they are entirely dependent on the performance of the underlying real estate properties and the overall health of the real estate market.  Additionally, TIC investments are generally illiquid, severely limiting the investors’ ability to access their funds should the need arise.

TIC investments typically pay a high commission – often as much as 10% which often explains the stockbroker’s motivation in recommending the TIC investment to the investor.
