What is a Single-Asset Entity?

A single-asset entity is typically a limited liability company (LLC) that owns real estate but has no other assets. Single-asset entities, or SAEs, are designed to limit liability for both borrowers and lenders. They are especially helpful to lenders, because, if a borrower personally declares bankruptcy, but they own property via a single-asset entity, the property will not be involved in the bankruptcy.
