Good evening. I am Loren, a licensed attorney and I look forward to assisting you.

The problem with using an LLC or corporation to make ownership of property anonymous is that someone still has to sign documents on behalf of the LLC or corporation and that will show up on title.

Expert:  Loren replied 1 year ago.

If you wish an ownership structure which will keep you anonymous then you may want to look into a land trust. That way, you will maintain beneficial ownership but the title will be in the name of the trust and any documents will be signed by the trustee and you will not appear on any public record.

Check with your local banks and trust companies to find a trustee.
