The White Law Group continues to investigate potential securities fraud claims against broker-dealers for improper recommendation of non-traded REIT investments such as United Development Funding Land Opportunity Fund Investors LP or United Development Funding IV.
Unfortunately for some investors limited partnerships and real estate investment trusts (REIT) sponsored by UDF were not as “safe” as their broker led them to believe.
The Trouble with Non-Traded REITs
The trouble with non-traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) like United Development Funding Land Opportunity Fund Investors LP, is that they lack liquidity and are inherently risky. Compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds, non-traded REITs are more complex and are better suited for investors that can afford to risk the total losses of their investment.
Brokers often earn extremely high sales commission selling non-traded REITs, sometimes as high as 15%. Unfortunately, the high sales commissions associated with non-traded REITs often provides some broker dealers with enough incentive to overlook suitability requirements.
In addition, brokers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend. They must ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor and are in line with the clients risk tolerance, age, net worth, and investment experience.
If a brokerage firm makes unsuitable investment recommendations or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be liable for investment losses through FINRA arbitration.
