Setting up mortgage for rental property


Journal Entry Debit Credit
(A) 7 Park Ave Building $300k
(A) 7 Park Ave Land $100k
(E) Title Company Fees $10k
(L) Mortgage with Wells Fargo $280k
(A) Bank of America $130k

- you need to break out land from building. You can depreciate the building but not land so they should be segregated on the balance sheet
- Mortgage with Wells Fargo is a Long-Term Liability account
- Bank of America is a Bank Asset account
- Title Company Fees is an expense account
- 7 Park Ave building and 7 Park Ave Land are Asset accounts
