  • buy real estate / rental property

    Hi

    I am on currently on H1B visa and my perm has been applied recently. I am considering to buy a rental property with couple of tenents renting the property. I can I buy a rental property and receive the monthly rent from tenents?

    will it impact my currrent green card processing? any restriction on owning a rental propery on H1b and claim rents as additional income

    thanks

      usally tenents pay the rents through checks. I just need to collect the checks from them and if they complain about any repiar I may have to call service provders to fix it. other than that I do not need to manage any thing on the property. will it be considered as managing the property. or I should not do any maintainence on the property

      thanks

          All these activities are considered passive investment and not employment. Therefore, there is no problem.

            Is it legal to get rental income on H1b

            Is it legal to get rental income on H1b? I am planning to buy a new property and rent my current home. Also the tenant sends me check every month and incase of any maintainance he calls me, and I send the handy man for repair. Is it okay to do so?

                Collecting rent is fine.
                Property management, on the other hand, violates the terms of your visa.

                "Also the tenant sends me check every month" -- Yes
                " incase of any maintainance he calls me, and I send the handy man for repair. Is it okay to do so?" -- No, not fine

                Hire a property manager

                  When we decided to buy an apartment in the UAE, we first found a place and a house here, and then contacted an agent who helped to correctly execute all the documents in accordance with the law. To receive money from renting an apartment is a passive income. It does not contradict the conditions of your visa.

                    We want to buy a condo in New York. We have already chosen a place https://fodyo.com/en-us/developments/new-york/41-newel-street/ and decided on how to pay for it (we have most of the money and are going to get a loan). But I worry because of the green card processing. I should say, your opinions have calmed me down. Thanks for sharing your experience!
