Landlords Protect Your Personal Assets

There is no better time to protect yourself from tenant lawsuits! Transfer your property to an LLC.

We can help you form your California Limited Liability Company (LLC). We will work with you and determine which LLC is best for you and provide a Comprehensive LLC Organization Package that contains everything you will need to operate the California limited liability company in compliance with California law.


Pros of Forming an LLC:

Asset Protection

  • Should an accident occur, you might lose not only the property itself, but all of your other personal assets as well. For example, if some negligent act results in severe injury to a tenant, worker, or guest, the claimant will be able to attach your personal assets (including other properties, your home, bank accounts, vehicles, stock) to satisfy the judgment. By contrast, if the property is held in a California limited liability company, the LLC may be liable, and its assets subject to attachment by the judgment creditor, but the individual member's personal assets will remain protected.


Estate Planning Benefits

  • Rather than filing a new deed, members can transfer ownership of the property to their children by simply increasing their membership percentage in the LLC.

  • Best of all, current tax laws allow a tax-free gift of up to $12,000 per year and because the interest transferred from a parent to the child(ren) would be an unmarketable minority interests, the IRS will permit up to a 40% valuation discount on the fair market value of the real estate being transferred.


Tax Benefits


  • Get the tax benefit of being treated like a partnership, or sole proprietorship,

  • A Single-Owner LLC offers an additional unique benefit: the IRS will automatically classify a single-owner LLC as a sole proprietor. The owner of the LLC reports the LLC's profits or losses on Schedule C of their personal tax return (usually Form 1040)
