Many people today are complaining about the bad economy. However, there are always opportunities for the astute investor. For instance, depressed real estate prices have placed many attractive properties on the market that might not have been there, but for the current economic circumstances.

Some people are afraid to get involved in real estate investment. “What would happen if someone sues me?” they might say. “I don’t want to lose my home!” Creation of a Subchapter S Corporation or a Limited Liability Company is essential to guard against these possibilities.

These are business entities that can be created by an individual to own and operate the investment property. There are substantial financial advantages to owning property in this manner and it protects your individual assets, if that “worst case scenario” occurs. Because the Internal Revenue Code allows for the pass-through of the profits, losses and expenses, the tax consequences are no different than that which would have occurred has the property been owned by the individual. On the other hand, the individual owners of the Sub-S Corporation or the LLC cannot be held individually liable for the debts or obligations, unless they have personally guaranteed same.

As with any major challenge, it is always important to consult with your legal and accounting expert. This is an area that has intricacies that require advice. However, with a little bit of knowledge, you can gain substantial benefits and financial security.

You come home from work one night and you find, in the mail, a ticket telling you that you are being cited by the Municipal Code Official because the grass is too long at your investment property. Unbeknownst to you, there is a Municipal Ordinance requiring the grass to be kept less than 8″ in height. You quickly drive down to the property that you have rented to that nice couple and you see what the Code Official saw: High grass!

When you call your tenant, he tells you that he was on vacation and then he got sick and yes, he did not have a chance to cut the lawn, as required by the Lease. You tell him about the ticket and he promises to get it cut. The issue remains – Who is responsible for the cost of the ticket? And how will it be defended?

The good new is that if the grass gets cut and you go into Court with the problem resolved, you may be able to convince the Prosecutor to recommend a dismissal of the ticket. In that case, you may walk away with a very minimal fine or maybe even just pay the court costs. Remember that just because you have a clause in your lease that requires the tenant to cut the grass, (or any other municipal requirement – eg., snow removal, trash cans being put out too early…), it is still your responsibility. You may want to consider a clause in your lease requiring the tenant to compensate you for any fines (and maybe even your time) if you are required to attend Court to resolve any issues created by the tenant.

If anyone is looking for a property management company then I highly recommend Realty Solutions. The HOA that I am a board member on specifically uses this business because Eileen Lukens works there. Eileen sets the bar very high when it comes to professionalism, attention to detail, extensive knowledge of property management and excellent interpersonal skills. Realty Solutions is very lucky to have Eileen working for them. We would follow her anywhere because she is that good!

Jeff DeLoach at Realty Solutions knocked it out of the park! I had two offers on my townhome in Gloucester Twp within a week of listing. I just closed on a cash offer last week. It was the first home i've sold and Jeff made it as easy as can be on me! I will be using them for my future property purchases. Thanks again!
