Let's say a character in a story, pre-internet era, is investigating an anonymous corporation like an LLC that owns a real estate property. Where would Articles of Incorporation or the like be physically stored?
Would it make sense, for example, that records for a real estate property would be stored in a city's City Hall; that the property would be owned by something anonymous like an LLC; and that Articles of Incorporation would be filed with a state's Secretary of State office, in a different city?
The setting for this story is a pulpy version of a neo-noir American city, modern day but with a twist (for example, no internet) -- so while the details should be plausible, they don't need to be precisely realistic and perfectly exact.
