From the moment the relinquished property is sold until the time the exchanger's account is closed, the safety of your exchange funds is our primary concern.

ADE Triple Protection Program

Our state of the art "triple protection" program ensures the highest level of security.

To implement this approach, we use the Customers Bank, headquartered in New York, or TriState Capital Bank, headquartered in Pennsylvania . These banks provide specialized services for 1031 depositors including direct 1099s, seamless execution, and copies of monthly statements. 

Step 1

New Separate Bank Account Protection

A new individual bank account is established for your specific exchange. It is opened using the exchanger’s tax ID # and labeled “for the benefit of” (F/B/O) the exchanger. The proceeds from the relinquished sale only go into this account and you will receive a monthly account statement from the bank each month. 

Step 2

Dual Written Authorization Protection

We require your written or email authorization before funds can be dispersed from this account. We make it easy and contact you for final approval. This procedure is followed when funds need to be released for earnest money, a closing, or to close out your account.

Step 3

Qualified Escrow Protection (OPTIONAL)

You can choose to use a Qualified Escrow Agreement that is signed by you, the bank and ADE. This separate document legally establishes your ultimate legal ownership of the funds and specifies that your signature is required for funds to be moved, while still complying with the 1031 Regulations (additional fees apply).
