Equity Sharing | Do it Yourself
Set up your own Equity Sharing Transaction with the forms and tools the Law Office of Marilyn Sullivan uses for their clients. Just click on the Products link to order the following:
The Equity Share Coach: A tutorial on how to put your transaction together beginning with finding a property through closing and entering into the correct agreement with your co-owner. The Preliminary Commitment, also available, is the document you and your co-owner sign before you find a property. It gives you the peace of mind that all parties are in basic agreement on terms although the property has not yet been purchased.
The Agreements. The Equity Sharing Agreement is now available to you so you can prepare your own transaction. The formats of these documents include the Traditional Equity Share with Investor and Occupier (Occupier lives in property; investor puts up most of the down payment), Co-occupier Equity Share (all live in property), and Joint Venturer Equity Share (all are Investors). These many formats allow any co-purchase transaction to fit the Equity Sharing model. Go to our How It Works page for more information on each of these models. E-mail us to find out which form you need if you are unsure.
For Calculating the Numbers. The Equity Share Calculator calculates the ownership interests the co-owners should receive based upon the contributions they make, along with their tax deductions and potential profit.
