The new rule — which will be piloted in Manhattan and Miami-Dade County between March and August — is aimed squarely at uncovering money laundering in two markets that have been propped up by foreign investors.
In Manhattan, the mandate will apply to buyers purchasing properties priced at $3 million or more — as well as paying in all cash and using a shell company, such as a limited liability corporation, to shield their identity.
Please feel free to get in touch with any questions about the market -- or for any real estate guidance. I'm happy to provide a complimentary assessment of your apartment or assist you with your search.
