Sample Corporate Resolution

In the event that a company decides to sell its property, it will require a corporate resolution to sell real estate.

This is a straightforward document that cites the name of the buyer and the location of the company's property. The location of the real estate sold may be at a street address, section, block, or lot. Wrapping up, a corporate resolution to sell real estate will agree to terms of the contract of sale and include any closing documents in connection therewith.

Frequently asked questions

Yes, property and other real estate assets may be sold directly to your LLC. However, forming an LLC means that your property, including real estate, is kept separate from the business due to limited liability protection. Selling your property to your LLC means the property, or real estate, is no longer considered a separate asset. Should you have additional questions, it is wise to consult a legal professional or individual state laws for more information.

An LLC is legally capable of selling property. The LLC will transfer ownership to new owners through property deeds. The deed must be signed by an individual with legal authority. Otherwise, the deed is invalid, and the sale is unauthorized.

Authorization to sell real estate is a legal permission granted to an individual or entity, allowing them to sell a specific property. It's often needed when the property owner can't sell it themselves.

For example, in the case of a deceased owner, the estate executor would need authorization to sell the property. Also, an authorized representative would need permission to conduct the sale if a corporation owns a property. It's crucial to ensure proper authorization before any sale to avoid legal complications. As with any real estate transaction, it's best to seek advice from a professional like MyCorporation.

While it's not always required to consult a lawyer before using a real estate resolution, it's generally a good idea. Real estate resolutions can be complex and involve legal language that's tricky to navigate without professional help.

A lawyer can guide you through the document, ensuring you understand the terms and implications. They can also identify potential issues and suggest revisions to protect your interests. This way, you can make informed decisions and reduce the risk of future legal complications. Remember, it's always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to legal matters.

Using a real estate resolution requires legal compliance. Typically, approval must be obtained from the board of directors for a corporation or the members or managers of an LLC. It is essential to document the resolution in the minutes of the meeting where it was approved.

Additionally, it must follow any guidelines set out in the organization's bylaws or operating agreement. The resolution must clearly state the authorized action and who is authorized to carry it out. Lastly, it should be kept with the organization's official records. Contact MyCorporation for advice on using a real estate resolution.
