Many issues with lending can create unplanned legal or tax consequences and at times may prohibit a mortgage from being funded at closing.

These TIC purchases often require commercial bank lending. For a 100% tax deferred exchange, the exchanger needs to make sure that all of the net proceeds from the sale of their old property are utilized for the TIC purchase. Additionally, any mortgage debt paid off from the sale of their old property must be replaced.
