If you own an LLC or Series LLC for your real estate business, chances are high that you may eventually need to handle an Assignment of Interest. An Assignment of Interest is the legal means for transferring the ownership of an LLC or other Company is from one entity to another. Typically, there are additional complications regarding under what conditions and what approvals are necessary in order to enforce the assignment. These conditions and approvals are located in the Subscription or Operating Agreement of the investment.
When Do You Need an Assignment of Interest?
There are a wide variety of situations where assigning all or part of the interest of a company can benefit the business as a whole. How this process looks is governed by state law as well as the Articles of Organization for your particular LLC. Some common reasons you may need an Assignment of Interest include the following scenarios:
- Lending. Sometimes members of an LLC will use their shares of the company as collateral for a loan. This is a fairly common practice in the real estate industry. Members may assign all or merely a portion of their interest in this situation.
- Debt. Forming companies and purchasing properties is expensive. Occasionally, members of an LLC may assign a portion of their interest in a company until their profits have satisfied a personal debt.
- Personal reasons. There are a wide range of reasons you may choose to assign your interest in your company to a trusted partner or family member. Marriage, death, or other major life events can raise this issue.

Why You Should Choose Royal Legal Solutions For Your Assignment of Interest
Beware of “Free” Online Templates
One mistake that some investors fall for is attempting to draft their own contracts or pulling them from free online services. Perhaps you have seen that you can get certain templates for legal documents, including Assignments of Interest, off of the internet. Any attorney will caution you against using these for your business. Ultimately, these “free” documents can cost you a great deal of money in the end. The reality is that anyone can write something and give it away on the internet. So that document may have been penned by an attorney who makes $1500 an hour, or it may have been a school exercise for a student who does not speak English as a first language. Frankly, it is impossible to know the source of such documents and they should be regarded with suspicion.

In fact, we have been called after clients of ours have made this mistake. Trying to correct errors in legal documents after the fact is infinitely more difficult, time consuming, and costly to the client than hiring a professional to handle the document in the first place.
