My family owns rental properties and I am a tenant. The properties were inherited in a trust and then they converted the trust to an LLC comprised of 6 members (siblings). My mother was one of the 6 and she passed away last year. She had all ppwk in order with myself as her only benefactor. I own one sixth of the home I rent. My uncle is the landlord, does all maintenance, bookkeeping and upkeep of the property. He required 5G from each member to put in a seperate emergency account when the LLC was established and acknowledges my mother's contribution goes to me when the LLC is dissolved. He has denied my legal right to be a full member but not my 1/6 right to all profits. He is a crook. We are dissolving the company with the last piece of property, the rentals the market. He kept over 3G from each member after the last piece of property sold amounting to close to $50G he claims to have in a seperate account, "in case of an emergency". The last time I asked for my money, he made me sign a promissory note and then he took the money back when the property sold. He did the same to my aunt. I am low on money and I did not pay my rent for august or September due to the fact he can take he has 8g belonging to me. Can they evict me?

Please allow me some time to read your facts and type my response.

If you receive an email regarding a phone call for an extra price that comes directly from the website and not from me and I have no control over the sending of the email. I don't take part in the telephone program and only work through this format and under your facts this format should be sufficient.

Ok
Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 1 year ago

Yes, since the property is owned by the LLC which is a separate legal entity (similar to a corporation), then the LLC can file to evict you if you don't make your rental payments. The fact that there is or may be other monies from which the payments may be taken doesn't play a part in the eviction UNLESS the written lease provides that if the rental payment is not made then it can be drafted from the monies on deposit instead.

If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a 5 Star Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work. Of course, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions in this thread. I want to be sure all of your questions are answered.

My lease agreement was made prior to inheriting. Is it even applicable?
Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 1 year ago

Yes it is still applicable but if it doesn't have that language then the answer reverts back to the LLC being able to evict you since it is a legal entity.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
But the LLC would have to have an official meeting and a vote to make the decision to evict, no? And would the decision require a majority agreement or unanimous?
Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 1 year ago

It depends on how the LLC documents are written up. Most LLCs don't require a meeting to handle normal business endeavors. I've never seen an LLC agreement that requires a unanimous vote, all of them I've seen and drafted required a simple majority vote, but, again, the papers could be drafted to require a unanimous vote.

yes, i co-own two pieces of property with a girl friend. after we bought the property, we formed an LLC to build and operate a nightly rental business on that property (in west Texas in the middle of nowhere). so, the LLC is owned by both of us (Terlingua Rentals) and the land is owned individually.

Now my girlfriend is suing me to sell the LLC business and I think this means she thinks that means the land as well. I am wondering if noe the building are a fixture of the land now....… read more
