How To Protect Your Real Estate Assets During COVID-19 (Webinar)
In our fourth webinar in a series exploring the impact of COVID-19 on landlords, Azibo CEO Chris Hsu hosted The Real Estate Investor's Lawyer Jeffrey Lerman to discuss how to protect your real estate assets during an economic downturn.
Some key insights from this webinar:
- Legal entities can create asset protection for real estate investments and provide litigation deterrence. Insurance is not a litigation deterrence—it actually incentivizes the litigants to sue for insurance money.
- Investors must take action to create legal protection before they are sued. A legal entity that is created after the initiation of a legal action will not provide protection for that suit due the Uniform Fraudulent Transfers Act.
- Even if landlords have created asset protection, they must still take the appropriate actions to main the corporate veil and keep their entity in compliance. Each legal entity should have its own bank account to avoid commingling funds.
- Having proper asset protection is a competitive advantage. No team can win without an effective offense and defense.

These free webinars are part of the Azibo series "Helping Landlords Navigate the Impact of COVID-19." As the current health crisis takes its toll on the economy, independent landlords across the U.S. are wondering how they’ll make their next mortgage payment and navigate this uncertain time.
