This work arose as a result of a need expressed by many attorneys, accountants, contractors, investment bankers, mortgage bankers, real estate brokers, and educators for a practical discussion of the basic principles behind real estate syndication to serve as a basic reference and text. It is intended as an over-view of the functions of the syndicator and the place of syndication in the development and operation of real estate. It will acquaint the reader with the economic background and operation of syndication and leaves the discussion of the historical development of real estate syndication to other publications.

The book is written from the standpoint of real estate syndication in California, but the techniques described should be operable in other jurisdictions as well. Many of the principles relate not only to real estate syndication, but have broader application to the general field of syndicating or joint venturing other types of property.

The reader who intends to acquire an in-depth background may want to review the glossary before reading the other chapters, so that he will have a thorough understanding of the terms used. In this edition the text has been expanded over prior editions. The reader who wants to review sample offering circulars and promotional material can get copies of same from any investment banking firm active in the solicitation and sale of limited partnership interests.
