Questions About Partnership

1 Reply

I am new to REI. I own a triplex and looking to buy another duplex. I haven't been actively looking for partners but my coworker became interested in REI after she has been hearing what I've been doing with my properties. I had tea at her house tonight and she is wondering if she can partner up with me. This is one side of REI that I haven't been looking into--partnerships. I have a couple of questions that I hope you can help me with.


  • We will purchase a multi family property.
  • We will get a mortgage for this deal.
  • We will most likely split the down payment and closing costs down the middle (i.e. 12.5% down, half of closing cost).
  • She wants me to do most of the active management. She wants to be totally hands off with the property management aspect of things.
  • How is the mortgage structured? Whose name will it be under?
  • How about the title of the property? Whose name will it be under?
  • Considering that I will be actively managing the property? Can you give suggestions as far as equitable ways of dividing the profits/loss?
Thanks in advance for your answers.
