INVESTOR ALERT—How Can I Recover My Losses In The United Development Funding REIT
The Wolper Law Firm is investigating claims relating to United Development Funding III and United Development Funding IV Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT), publicly traded REITs. If you are an investor in these REITs, contact the Wolper Law Firm for a free consultation to discuss your legal options.
On July 3, 2018, the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) filed a complaint against United Development Funding III and IV, as well as some of their senior executives, alleging several violations of federal securities laws. Specifically, it is alleged that United Development Funding misled investors in connection with the capital raise and use of funds for its REITs. The SEC complaint follows a Well Notice that was served on United Development Funding in 2016. Upon filing the complaint, an agreement was reached with the SEC to resolve the dispute in which UDF officials will have to, among other things, pay $8.2 million in civil penalties and disgorge ill gotten profits.
A full copy of the SEC complaint is below:
UDF is a publicly traded REIT that invests in secured loans for the acquisition and development of residential real estate in desirable markets. According to their website, “United Development Funding IV provides investors with an opportunity to diversify their portfolios with unique and fundamentally sound investments in affordable residential real estate.”
