Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

You are required to replace the amount of mortgage debt on the relinquished property with new mortgage debt on the replacement property.

In a 1031 exchange, if you receive property that has less mortgage debt than the property you transferred, this imbalance in your favor will be treated the same as the receipt of cash. This is how mortgage boot is created:

Mortgage boot is triggered when you have received a property with less debt attached than your own property. The tax code treats this reduction of debt as a form of income. Unless your 1031 transaction is somehow balanced out with additional cash or personal property, your debt reduction will create a tax liability.

The following links contain excellent additional information which you will find helpful:
