Customer Question
My Father passed away...

My Father passed away last year and my Sister and I are the only beneficiaries. We have 4 properties that generate income. we have put the properties in a LLC with her being the managing member. I would like some control and accountability as I do not trust her as she has already skimmed thousands of dollars since my Dad passed. is there a amendment that can be drafted giving me some control and acess to bank records etc.?

Lawyer's Assistant: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

California

Lawyer's Assistant: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?

I only have operating agreement of LLC and invoices and missing funds that should have been forwarded to me . I guess I would have to request a audit of expenses

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Thats about it. Thank you

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed California attorney with extensive legal entity experience. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.

Answer: You would prepare an amendment to the Operating Agreement (signed by all the members), stating that all members of the LLC would manage the LLC moving forward. Please click here for a fillable template that you can use.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
