A: You will need to consult with an attorney and get this advice. Many, many considerations are involved here, and there may not be a perfect answer. The LLC operating agreement must be read, applied or changed; Who will be the insured?; Liability concerns; the Member's Estate Planning; one or multiple parcels?; Administrative status of the LLC; property taxes; Tax planning; etc.
