Is It Possible to Own Real Estate Anonymously?

Landlords are frequent targets of lawsuits. Who wouldn’t want to own their investment properties anonymously? But governments don’t like anonymity, especially when it comes to large assets that are frequently at the center of legal actions. Most states' laws are designed to prevent anonymous ownership of tangible assets.

So is it ever possibly to truly own real estate anonymously?

The short answer is (drum roll please)… not perfectly, but you can make it difficult for anyone to figure out who really owns your property.

That said, it’s pretty easy to buy real estate anonymously. Anyone can use an associate’s name (a “nominee” in legalese) on the contract of sale. The nominee can then assign you the contract of sale before settlement with just a signature, or if they buy it in a company name, they can simply assign ownership of the company to you after purchasing. Easy as pie. In the latter scenario, your name appears exactly nowhere on the settlement papers, sales contract or articles of incorporation.

It’s never easy to confront tenants and try to shape their behavior, and you need to keep a paper trail. So what is the right paperwork to use? Do you need to use an eviction notice? Can a non-renewal be used instead? What about just giving a tenant a warning?

With so many terms and legal implications, it’s easy to get lost in the lingo. To help you keep them straight, let’s see the difference between an eviction notice, a violation notice and a non-renewal notice.
