An LLP is a form of business that, while a partnership, limits the liability of the partners. In real estate, a partnership can have many applications. It is critical to have a legal document drawn up that spells out all the rights and responsibilities of the various partners. It is important to have a real estate contract attorney who represents your interests to assist you in hammering out the details of these contracts.
  • Tax Deferred Exchanges: A tax deferred exchange involves the exchange of certain types of property that may defer the recognition of capital gains or losses that would be due upon the sale. As a result, any capital gains taxes otherwise due are deferred.
