Replacement Property Identification Requirements

Replacement Property Identification

When you’re conducting a 1031 exchange, you have 180 days total after the sale of your relinquished property to complete your exchange. The first 45 of those days are designated as your identification period. This is when you identify in writing all of your replacement properties. In this article, we are going to walk through some of the requirements for identifying replacement property in your 1031 exchange.

Identification in Writing

The most important requirement in the identification process is documenting your identification. Your replacement property identification needs to be made in writing. This means you need to compile the basic information about your replacement property (address, name, legal description, etc.) and send it to your qualified intermediary. It’s very important to document this process and confirm receipt with your qualified intermediary.

Start Early

Starting the identification process early is essential. Mistakes happen, and you want to make sure any errors that arise are addressed and resolved before the final day of your identification period. Working with your qualified intermediary before you even sell your relinquished property can give you a head start on the identification process.
