You would get the $45k, out of that you would bring the loans current, then pocket the rest. His $45k would be buying half the interest in the property, including half the equity in the property, plus all FUTURE equity that builds up in the property, plus 50% of all rental income and business income off the properties, and you would both equally split all costs involved with owning and operating the properties and business.
So if you have a total of $10k invested and he comes in with $45k, then you would get your $10k back and he would get his $45k back after the property sells and you pay off the underlying mortgage and any proceeds left you would split 50/50.
You may have only $10k of your cash invested where he is coming in with $45k, but remember, YOU have all the EQUITY that is in the property right now. That’s what he’s initially getting up front going into this deal…HALF of all that equity, plus half of all future appreciation, plus half of all principle reduction that gets paid down on the loan.
To just give you $45k where he gets half of all this and you make the full mortgage payment wouldn’t be a good deal for you. You would be paying the debt on the property from your half of the business proceeds while he would retain his half all for himself, plus half all future appreciation on the property. That’s bull!
If that’s what he wants then tell him you will do this, BUT, the business will have to LEASE the building from you at market rent where that money would be used to cover the mortgage payments, taxes, insurance, maintenance and repairs, etc.
He can’t expect to just slide into this by putting up a one time investment of $45k where you pay the entire mortgage payment, the business pays no rent AND he gets half ownership in the property to boot! Heck if thats what he wants, then tell him to just BUY the thing out right and do the business on his own!!!
You take your equity and the amount you put in so far and that’s what YOU have in the property right now. He’s buying into your equity and all future appreciation, plus half the cost of setting up a business that you would both own. That sounds like a steal for this guy to get in on and splitting ALL costs would be more than fair including the rest of the mortgage payments, unless of course you set it up where the business leases the building from you and that rental income would pay the mortgage payments and all other costs in owning the building and splitting anything left out of the lease payments. Anyway you cut it, it would all be a wash in the end whether you set up as a lease back or just split the mortgage payments!
