Why Work with a New York Real Estate Attorney When Buying or Selling a Home in Nassau County, Suffolk County, and New York City, NY?

An experienced New York real estate attorney guides and protects you through the entire real estate transaction, including negotiating the purchase/sale contract, so you obtain favorable terms, e.g., contingency clauses, walk away rights, mortgage provisions, etc. Be mindful that the transaction stems from the contract, so it must be well written, vigorously negotiated, and protect your interests.

New York real estate transactions can move at the speed the buyer or seller is comfortable with. Therefore, “all-cash” transactions (no mortgage required) can be completed in the 30-day range from contract to closing. If the purchaser is obtaining a mortgage, a 60-day range is more realistic.

How We Help Buyers:

  • Reviewing and negotiating the real estate contract
  • Resolving issues (including repairs) prior to closing
  • Negotiating contingency clauses, walk away rights, mortgage provisions, etc.
  • Corresponding with the seller’s attorney, title company, and mortgage company
  • Explaining the real estate contract and mortgage commitment to the buyer
  • Preparing for closing, including necessary title work
  • Reviewing the mortgage commitment and title commitment
  • Representing the buyers at closing

How We Help Sellers:
