Residential Real Estate

The bulk of our practice is assisting buyers and sellers of condos, co-ops, townhouses, and single-family dwellings in the five boroughs of New York City and surrounding counties.

Our residential real estate team is experienced in guiding our clients –  especially first-time buyers – through the legal process, offering them the expertise required to see the deal through to a successful conclusion. In all transactions, we use the collective legal experience gained over decades to provide contract language that further protects our clients. We keep our clients apprised of major events as they occur and readily answer their questions throughout the transaction.

Our real estate attorneys provide timely and professional negotiations, accurate documentation to expedite transactions, and meticulous attention to detail. We conduct careful, extensive due diligence for every transaction and review board minutes, building information, and we contact management companies in search of possible assessments, potential litigation, noise, water, infestation, or other such issues. For new construction projects, we carefully review the offering plan materials and provide a detailed written summary memorandum.
