Real estate investment and property management companies form legal entities to achieve strategic objectives and to manage risk. To insulate the investors and property managers, a separate legal entity typically owns each property separately. The investors, in turn, own that entity. This most basic form of the corporate shield limits risk from liabilities associated with the property. The corporate structure is also an efficient way to channel investment capital from investors to various properties such that each property can attract a unique set of investors.
