Recovery Options For CNL Lifestyle Properties Investors

According to reports, CNL Lifestyle Properties Inc. recently announced that its estimated per share value has dropped to $7.31 from its original price per share of $10, a drop of 27%. The REIT is also cutting its "distribution," or dividend to investors.

Investors in CNL Lifestyle Properties may be able to recover these losses through FINRA arbitration claims against the broker-dealer that recommended the investment.

The White Law Group continues to file FINRA arbitration claims involving non-traded REITs life CNL Lifestyle Properties.

Those claims generally allege that brokerage firms failed to perform adequate due diligence on these investments before offering them for sale to their clients and that the broker-dealers were blinded by the enormous commissions these investment pay to the firms that sell them (the commissions are generally between 7-10%, far in excess of what a brokerage firm would make selling a customer a mutual fund).
