Benefits of a Limited Partnership
A limited partnership is a business structure that combines the advantages of both general partnerships and corporations. In a limited partnership, there are two types of partners: general partners and limited partners. General partners have unlimited liability and are actively involved in the management and decision-making of the business. On the other hand, limited partners contribute capital to the partnership but have limited liability and are not involved in day-to-day operations. Limited partnerships offer several benefits, such as the ability to attract passive investors while providing management control to general partners. Additionally, limited partners can enjoy limited liability, meaning their personal assets are protected in case of business debts or legal liabilities. This array of benefits makes Limited Partnerships an attractive structure for real estate investment companies in Texas
