Special Purpose Entity

A SPE is a legal entity (typically a limited liability company or limited partnership) created to fulfill narrow, specific, or temporary objectives. SPEs are typically used by commercial real estate owners to isolate the entity owners from individual financial risk. Special purpose entities are also commonly used to hide the true ownership of a property. Some owners refer to a SPE as a single purpose entity.
