Which type of form or documentation will legally confirm or prove that a rental property is actually in a LLC?

I am putting my own rental property into an LLC. I have formed the LLC but during the entire formation process, there was no legal documentation in which the property address was mentioned. I had to only provide my mailing address (which is different from the rental property) to receive my LLC paperwork. Therefore, how am I to prove to tenants or the law that the property actually belongs to this LLC? Perhaps the LLC's operating agreement should confirm that?

Best Answer:

IamPeace: Look up the property on the county assessor's website and see who (or what entity) legally owns the property. If the owner is an individual person then its not an LLC, if the owner is an LLC then the rental property belongs to that entity.

You can also look at the lease and who the rent payments are made to. If the lease is between the tenant and the LLC, with rent payments made payable to the LLC, then the rental probably belongs to the LLC.

Other answer:

IamPeace:
Property tax records at the county clerk's office show the recorded owner of the property. You can then check withyour state dept. (most are online) to see if the LLC is registered and what the agent's address is.

The actual LLC document.

You can check with your state's department where LLC's are registered.
tro:
the state the LLC is registered with will have the ID number issued to it as an LLC(corporation)
