More About This Show
Scott Smith is an attorney and real estate investor that specializes in helping other investors reduce their risks and grow their assets. He started the company Royal Legal Solutions in order to provide tax strategies and legal solutions to real estate investors.

Scott explains that real estate is the highest litigated industry in the United States. Investors should not worry if they will get sued, but instead plan for when they will inevitably be sued, and to plan to implement the most legal protection possible.

Typically, he sets his clients up with a Series LLC Structure. A series LLC is a parent, and it can have an infinite number of children LLCs. Although only 11 states allow a business to form a Series LLC, once it is formed it can be used anywhere in the country.

Scott explains that not only does this structure provide the most legal protection, but it is also the most cost-effective strategy. This is because there is no additional cost to more LLCs to the series.

On today’s show, Scott is diving deep into the topic of asset protection. We’ll discuss pass-through entities, and why you might want to consider furnishing your rental properties in 2018. Scott is sharing his insight into the new tax law, and how asset protection and insurance work together.
