Real Estate - Residential and Commercial

Buying or selling your home requires a lawyer in New York. The first step is reviewing the contract. When you are buying, the title to the property must be examined to make sure there are no liens and if there are to make sure they are resolved on or before closing. When you are selling, documents must be prepared, information gathered and issues resolved before closing.

A commercial transaction is more complicated due to possible zoning issues, mortgage financing, structure of the purchasing entity and other issues.

A real estate transaction may be relatively straight forward, but it can also get complicated quickly. You need an experienced lawyer to handle your real estate needs.
