Proposal for a uniform EU REIT regime - part 2

In the second part of this article, the authors outline their proposals for a uniform EU Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) regime. Such a regime would, in the authors' opinion, eliminate problems that would otherwise arise from the necessity for common action on the part of the Member States to resolve difficulties with regard to REITs. A uniform EU REIT regime would also prevent characterization conflicts and would create a level playing field within the Internal Market for real estate investment.
