Creating A Limited Liability Company For Real Estate Investments

If you are investing in residential or commercial real estate, you can be held financially responsible for accidents that occur on your property. For example, a visitor could slip on your property and name you in his or her premises liability case, or a worker could sue you for injuries sustained while working on your property. One way to reduce your personal liability is by forming a limited liability company (LLC).

At Higgins, Roberts & Suprunowicz, P.C., in Schenectady, we believe that a good real estate attorney is one who is able to look at your case from all angles, including planning for the future. In addition to helping our clients draft real estate contracts and get title insurance, we can help them create LLCs to limit liability. When you hire our firm, we take a proactive approach to ensure that your business is protected.

The Tax Benefits Of LLC Formation

Establishing an LLC not only shields you from personal liability; there are significant tax benefits to setting up an LLC for your investment property. LLCs involve flow-through taxation, which allows you to put your company’s profits on your personal income tax return, which may help you avoid the double tax that corporations face.

Furthermore, if you decide to use your property for personal enjoyment in the future, an LLC will allow you to transfer it without facing corporate tax consequences.
