Beneficial management structure - LLC or LP

Beneficial management structure

Depending upon your specific situation, either a LLC or a LP may provide the management structure you need. A LLC provides a flexible structure that allows members to manage the entity or to elect a manager or a group of managers. All members of a LLC are provided limited liability. Additionally, many states allow one person to form a LLC.

LPs, however, require at least one general partner and one limited partner. The general partner is personally liable, but that may be handled by forming a corporation or LLC to serve as general partner, thus encapsulating any liability in a protected entity. When you use a LLC or LP for real estate investments, you may also benefit from estate planning and gifting opportunities available
