Description of Services:

Asset Preservation, Inc., a subsidiary of Stewart Title Company, is a leading national "Qualified Intermediary" for IRS Section 1031 Tax Deferred Exchanges of investment property. Since our establishment in 1990, we have successfully facilitated over 125,000 exchanges. In addition to offering extensive experience on all types of exchanges, API provides one of the most secure programs for holding exchange funds. Our security features include:

  • The financial strength of Stewart Title Company. A written "Letter of Assurance" from Stewart Title Company can be provided to investors who select API;

  • A separate Qualified Exchange Account is established for each Exchanger. The Exchanger may require a notarized signature for the movement of funds - a security feature that assures exchange funds are moved only at the direction of the Exchanger; and

  • Each exchange transaction is facilitated by a team of highly specialized experts in the §1031 tax deferred exchange field.
