How do I sell membership interest in an LLC?

Before you do anything else—before you even mention the possibility of selling membership interest—you absolutely need to read your LLC operating agreement. Operating agreements typically detail a specific process for transferring membership interests. Here are a few examples of common restrictions you may encounter:

  • Your agreement may give the other members of your LLC the right of refusal, meaning you must offer your interest to members before you can offer it to others.

  • Your agreement may dictate a set value at which you can offer your interest.

  • Your agreement may require a strict process for determining the value of your interest.

  • Your agreement may require unanimous consent of members to make a sale or to transfer full membership rights.

Once you’re certain that you’ve met the requirements outlined in your operating agreement, it’s just a matter of making the sale. You can use our free LLC membership bill of sale template to document the sale.

The LLC itself will have a few additional post-sale steps. For instance, the LLC will likely need to amend its operating agreement and its Articles of Organization. We have free templates for these amendments as well:

How do I buy membership interest in an LLC?

We recommend carefully reviewing the LLC operating agreement, doing a credit check, and performing a UCC search with the Secretary of State in the LLC’s state of formation before agreeing to buy any LLC membership interest. If there are debts of the LLC, you should use an attorney-drafted LLC bill of sale, and you should really be spending a couple thousand bucks in legal fees to really know what you’re getting into.
