U.S. Estate Planning and Law for International Families

美国

The U.S. real estate market has historically been perceived as a safe haven in times of economic uncertainty. Today, low-interest rates and taxes, a relatively stable U.S. economy, and the liquidity and transparency of the domestic real estate market have contributed to an acceleration of activity– including a record amount of foreign investment. We regularly handle real estate transactions in CaliforniaWashington, and Oregon for both domestic and international clients.

If you are a foreign individual or company looking to establish a presence in the U.S., you will face many of the same issues as U.S. citizens and companies, including:
  • Finding the best location and negotiating the best price
  • Acquiring the property while minimizing legal and business risk
  • Navigating complex regulatory structures
  • Structuring sensible financing
  • Making strategic entity decisions and minimizing tax liability
  • Obtaining necessary permits and licenses for construction and operation
  • Dealing with zoning, restrictive covenants, and encumbrances
  • Finding and enlisting construction, title, and other service providers
  • Preserving anonymity when possible

Key Considerations

Our attorneys can help you choose the best vehicle and posture for owning real estate based on your specific goals. Key considerations typically include the type of property you want to acquire, how long you want to hold it, and the income you expect it to produce.

For foreign investors, ownership through a U.S. or foreign corporation can mean double taxation on dividends, but this penalty may be outweighed by certain advantages of the corporate form. Those advantages may include: low taxation in your home country, immigration opportunities, and various estate and gift tax advantages.

Both domestic and foreign investors will want to consider U.S. state and local tax implications, as well as federal tax mitigation and deferral techniques. Every transaction is unique, just like every piece of land. We can help you get it right.
