What is a Subscription Agreement?

A Subscription Agreement in real estate investment syndication is a legal document where an investor agrees to buy interest in a property, detailing the investment amount, terms, and the investor's qualifications. It includes representations and warranties from both parties, outlines risks, and specifies conditions like fund usage and profit distribution. This agreement helps ensure legal compliance and protect the rights and interests of both the investor and the syndicator.
