Maintenance & Home Improvement in Equity Sharing

There are many types of repairs and maintenance that must be done on a home, some major and some minor. In general, upkeep on the home is the responsibility of the occupying owner.

Ownership Issues

Some important ownership issues to consider in an equity share arrangement include:

Equity Sharing & Risk

A equity share arrangement is generally less risky for an investor than owning a rental property. The reason being that renters have little incentive to maintain or improve the property.

Additional Capital Contributions

Additional capital contributions consist of improvements to the property that increase its value. Examples could be a new roof, a remodeled kitchen or bath, or an additional room or deck.

Initial Capital Contributions

Initial capital contributions in an equity share agreement are the initial costs of buying the property.
