      I am sure that a property cannot be exchanged for one of lesser value, am I correct. If it can be exchanged for a lesser property, would the new basis be zero and the balance of the gain subject to capital gains? Selling price $3.8m, gain $1.5m, wants to exchange into 683,000. I dont think this qualifies for 1031 exchange.

      This transaction can still qualify as a 1031 exchange, however, the difference between the value of the old and new property will be considered taxable boot.    In your example, about $1,230,000 will be the taxable gain.  Take a look at the Tax Tools 1031 worksheet to help you figure out the taxable gain.  Don’t forget to include the exchange expenses to help lower the gain.

      Does the old property have a mortgage?

      What are they doing with the net proceeds?
