  • Liability Management for beach rentals?

    I own several short term beach rental properties.  What is the best way to manage my liability exposure on these properties?

    In addition to appropriate insurance coverage, you should use one or more LLCs (NOT S-corporations). If you are in a state allowing series LLCs, that would be perfect. Otherwise, you have 2 choices:

    • Put them all in the same LLC. Less complexity and lower cost for administration but if the LLC is sued for one of the rentals, all are at risk.

    • Put them in separate LLCs. More administrative burden and costs but your liability is limited only to individual properties in the event of a lawsuit.

      Thank you Johanna!  That is consistent with my thinking.
