Recent SEC filings: UDF III claims to continue to work to produce missing financial reports

United Development Funding III LP operates as a real estate investment firm for institutional investors. The Company’s investment strategy is based on financing and acquiring land for median-priced residential homes, according to Bloomberg.

The White Law Group continues to investigate the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending UDF III to its clients. The firm has handled a number of claims involving UDF III over the years. In those claims, the firm has alleged, among other things, that the UDF investments were:

  • high-risk and unsuitable for our clients given their financial situation, needs and investment objectives,
  • that the risks of the investment were not fully disclosed to them, and
  • that the brokerage firms that sold the investments failed to conduct the proper due diligence with respect to the UDF investments (as the firms are required to do by FINRA Rules).
