The Role of a Qualified Intermediary (A.K.A. an exchange accommodator) in 1031 Exchanges: Why They are Crucial.

Today, most 1031 tax deferred exchanges are known as deferred exchanges. In
other words, when you effectively sell your property, you are not sitting across the table
and exchanging title with another property owner; therefore, you are doing what is
known as a deferred exchange. To qualify to defer taxes through the 1031 exchange, you must follow certain regulations, the most crucial of which is not to take aƫective possession or control of the proceeds of your sale. When you sell a property eƫectively, the money the equity from that sale is to go not to you but to
accompany your hire to hold your funds for you. Essentially, if the funds go to your
account, they will be taxed, and you cannot defer your taxes. So, the role of the
qualified intermediary is to hold your money for your benefit, and then, when you make your purchase, you can purchase it on your behalf. Why are funds for the property?

You are legally relinquishing control of your money to an entity you hire, and you must
ensure you’re utilizing a reputable firm. We work with many exchange
accommodators, and Beacon1031 maintains a list of exchange accommodators we
can share with you upon request.

In the case of the Delaware Statutory Trust (DST), since that entity is a real estate
syndication ( a security) some certain laws and regulations must be followed
when processing purchases, in practice, it is impossible to do a simultaneous
exchange; therefore, you must do a deferred 1031 exchange, and you are required to use
a qualified intermediary is also known as an exchange accommodator.
