Recovery of 1031 Express TIC Losses

Have you suffered investment losses in a 1031 Express tenant in common 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 involving broker-dealers’ improper recommendation that investors purchase risky tenant-in-common (or TIC) investments, including 1031 Express.

According to its website, 1031 Xpress is a part of the American Capital Group, a fully integrated real estate company.”  The firm claims to have “over 100 years of combined experience in developing, constructing, owning and managing multi-family properties.”

TICs 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).

The White Law Group has handled many FINRA arbitrations involving TIC investments and have found that in many cases the broker-dealers that recommended these investments failed to perform the necessary due diligence on the investments prior to recommending them for sale to their clients.

TICs can involve high risks and liquidity problems and in many cases brokerage firms misrepresent these risks and instead focus on the income streamed that is promised (and sometimes guaranteed) by these investments.  It is this income stream that often made these TIC investments appealing to retired investors who sought income during retirement, but who also didn’t realize the risks involved with these investments.

If you have questions about a TIC investment you purchased through a financial professional or broker-dealer, please call The White Law Group’s Chicago office at 312/238-9650 for a free consultation.

The White Law Group, LLC is a national securities fraud, securities arbitration, investor protection, and securities regulation/compliance law firm with offices in Chicago, Illinois and Boca Raton, Florida.
