Hey BP'ers,

So I am currently reading Raising Private Capital by Matt Faircloth. It is a wonderful book and very helpful. I have a question that I have not had answered. 

Lets say I find a deal for a rental property but do not have the capital for the down payment on the house. This private lender is willing to give me the 20% down for the down payment of the home. We agree to split profits 50/50 (equity and cash flow). He finances, I manage. Does this turn the property into a security? SEC rules apply?

I only bring this up because I have been researching multiple avenues of getting deals done and I seem to be knee deep in the weeds. I recognize that definitions are important especially when it comes to legality of certain arrangements. 

Thanks for any input!
