If your goal is to protect the real property from creditors you would place the real property into an irrevocable trust. An LLC provides less protection. What is your goal?

You want an irrevocable trust as that provides the best protection. Where in Montana are the properties located so I can provide a link for local Attorneys that provide FREE consultations in the area. They can go over the different type of trusts as well as their protections.
