A: Assuming that the LLC is set up properly, you wouldn't be able to go after the owner's personal assets such as their personal home. However, the LLC is responsible for it's employees under the doctrine of Respondeat Superior. The owner of the property is responsible for the manager it hires under the doctrine of Respondeat Superior. If you prevail, most likely a lien can be put on the business property that you are renting. Without understanding the exact relationship of the parties, my advise is not conclusive.
