Investigating Potential Claims
The White Law Group continues to investigate potential claims involving broker dealers who may have unsuitably recommended KBS Legacy Partners Apartment REIT to investors.
Non-traded REITS, like KBS Legacy Partners Apartment REIT, are complex, high risk investments. Lack of liquidity is often a problem for investors. Investors looking to sell often have difficulty finding a buyer, and can suffer significant losses on the sale.
Broker dealers are required to inform clients of the risks associated with investment recommendations and to ensure that those recommendations are suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience. Firms that fail to do so may be held responsible for any losses through FINRA Arbitration.
