Should title to my real property be in the name of an LLC?

Question Details: I would like to form an LLC for my rental property. Must I re-title the property from my personal name to the name of the LLC? If so, why? I thought one advantage of an LLC is to limit liability in the case of a lawsuit. Wouldn't any asset in the LLC be at risk in the event of a lawsuit or is having property title in the LLC name establishing legitimacy of the LLC?
