Year 15 Workshop

As low-income housing tax credit properties approach the end of their 15-year compliance period, developers face decisions concerning the option to buy out the limited partner, resyndicate the property, refinance and more. Gain a deeper understanding about the possibilities and opportunities at a crucial period in a LIHTC property’s lifespan. Consideration of these issues should begin well before construction, so regardless of where a property is in its lifespan, there are benefits to maximizing understanding of options and approaches.


2020 Discussion Topics:
  • Capital Account Basics
  • Special rules for nonprofit right of first refusal
  • Understanding the economics of the limited partner exit
  • Buying property vs buying LP partnership interest
  • Early exit by limited partner 
  • Resyndication
  • Qualified Contracts
