What is an equity sharing agreement?
An equity sharing agreement is a contract between two parties that outlines the terms of their joint ownership of property or assets. The agreement may specify how the parties will share profits and losses, how they will make decisions about the property, and what will happen if one party wants to sell their interest.
Equity sharing agreements can be used to jointly purchase property, start a business, or invest in a venture. They can be used by family members, friends, or business partners.
When drafting an equity sharing agreement, it is important to consider the following:
- What property or assets will be included in the agreement?
- How will the parties share profits and losses?
- How will decisions about the property be made?
- What will happen if one party wants to sell their interest?
- Are there any tax implications of the agreement?
It is also important to have a clear understanding of the rights and responsibilities of each party before signing the agreement. An experienced attorney can help you draft an equity sharing agreement that meets your needs and protects your interests.
