Investigating potential claims involving United Development Funding IV (UDF IV)

Did you suffer losses investing in United Development Funding IV (UDF IV) at the advice of your financial advisor? If so, the attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses by filing a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.

United Development Funding IV operates as a real estate investment trust (REIT) in the United States. It focuses on originating, purchasing, participating, and holding investment secured loans for the acquisition and development of parcels of real property as single-family residential lots; and the construction of model and new single-family homes, including development of mixed-use master planned residential communities.

There has been a lot of controversy about the REIT in the last few years. The SEC launched an investigation into United Development Funding IV in 2014 after a hedge fund manager accused the REIT of a Ponzi-like scheme.

In February of 2016, United Development Funding IV disclosed that it received a grand jury subpoena. The FBI seized documents and computers in a raid of the UDF IV offices in Grapevine, Texas.

UDF IV’s stock was also suspended at that time and no assurance can be given regarding the resumption of regular trading.

On May 17, 2017, the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (Nasdaq) announced that it would delist the common shares of United Development Funding IV (Trust).
