Residential Real Estate Transactions

Our goal when helping clients buy or sell residential real estate is to be sure that a client’s rights and interests are protected. We help clients understand their financing options and draft purchase and sale agreements that protect the investment in their home. We represent them at closing, making sure that all paperwork prepared by the lender and other parties was correctly prepared.

Commercial Real Estate In New York City

We help clients purchase or sell apartment buildings, retail stores, manufacturing plants, office buildings and all commercial real estate in New York City. We will make sure that the asking price is congruent with the market and that the building’s history and title are clear.

Whether purchasing or selling a commercial building, clients rely on our attorneys to provide them with sound advice, meticulously prepared documents and dedicated attention to their rights and interests.


Unlike buying a co-op, purchasing or selling a condominium involves actual property rather than a share in the property. However, purchasers of condominiums are governed in many ways by the rules established by the condominium association, making a condominium somewhat of a hybrid.

We make sure that the condo association in the proposed building is effective and financially stable, that common charges are not excessive, that there are adequate reserves for future repairs and that a specific unit will not require changes or repairs in the near future.


Purchasing a co-op apartment is more like a business transaction — the buyer is acquiring a share in the corporation that owns the building. Our attorneys help clients determine the stability of the corporation before they purchase. We assist our clients in looking at financial statements and balance sheets and identify sources of financing for the purchase.
