Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
Yes, as owner of the LLC, and if the LLC owns the title to the vehicle, the other owner has the same right to the vehicle as you would, if you are 50/50 partners. If he owns 10% of the LLC, then he has a 10% interest in the vehicle. Once purchased under the LLC, you cannot remove it from vehicle registration unless you, via the LLC, sell the vehicle to you, you buy the vehicle and pay the LLC value for the car, and then you obtain new title under your name. But keep in mind that if you do so, any profits and proceeds from the sale and purchase are split between all LLC partners and shareholders based on proportionate share of ownership.
No, you cannot, the creditor did business with you both, so if the vehicle was financed, he can refuse to remove you until you pay off the loan.
My apologies on the delay, I was offline but I would be most happy to clarify.
If you can change the car to your name, then that is great as far as your obligation to the financier. But as you are effectively removing an asset from the LLC, even if it is an asset that you can claim full control over, the other party can claim and argue that you are removing assets without permission. While unlikely if you are on good terms, if your partnership turns bitter and acrimonious, that is an argument that the other partner can use against you.
Thank you for your patience.
This sounds like a potentially explosive and a poisonous situation. I can try to help as much as I can, but as far as representation, that is something that I cannot provide as it would violate site rules. If you have more questions or are seeking more thoughts I can definitely assist, but I cannot extend my assistance to beyond this website. I am sorry!
Please understand that I am only going by your facts. Based on your facts you have a basis to pursue a dissolution. But nobody can be 'expelled' from something they own. You can file to dissolve and split the assets, but you cannot simply take over ownership of a business under your name based on bad acts of other owners. That is not something that takes place.
