Avoid Partnerships and Use an LLC

PARTNERSHIPS

DO NOT DO THIS. Here are 4 reasons why you do not want to get into a partnership.

  1. These are easy to get into and nearly impossible to get out of. The reason why these are nearly impossible to get out of is because it is rare that you have 2 or more people who can agree on WHEN the property gets sold and for HOW much it will be sold for. Because of this, the property rarely gets sold.  Unless you are a vampire, you are going to eventually get sick and/or die. At that most vulnerable moment, the other partners may not be in a position to buy you out when you or your family needs it most. No amount of trust or written documents will fix that.  
  2. WHEN things go bad like a new AC unit or roof needs to be replaced, all the partners may not be in a position to cough up money for repairs. If there are not sufficient resources to repair major items, tenants move out. When tenants move out, tweakers move in. When tweakers move in, the place gets burned to the ground. This property is a classic example of a partnership. It is currently boarded up and it’s only a matter of time before it burns to the ground. 
  3. We will not manage your property. We simply don’t have time to explain to 3 partners every maintenance issue. We have been there, done that and just won’t do it again.
  4. There is a more effective way of accomplishing the same task.
  • The other partners simply become lenders with set investment amounts and pre-determined rates of return.
  • The loans have an end date and the property becomes collateral for the loan.
  • One person makes the decisions on repairs, when it will get sold and how the silent partners are paid off.
  • It’s ok to have profit sharing at the sale as long as the terms are clearly defined.
