  • Both properties should be similar to qualify as “like-kind.” They must be of the same class, character, or nature. A vacant land, for instance, is like-kind to real property improved with a residential rental house.
  • The property for exchange must not be any of the following: Certificates of Trust, Partnership Interests, Stocks, Bonds, and Notes, Inventory or Stock in Trade, or Other Securities or Debt.
  • Both properties should be for use in a business or trade or for investment. Properties for personal use, such as a vacation home or primary residence, do not qualify for like-kind exchange treatment.
