Real Estate Closings, Agreements & Evictions

Our law firm has many years of experience in all phases of Real Estate transactions including the following:

Residential Property

We handle all transactions for residential property. This includes representation for either buyers or sellers. Our firm handles the sale and re-sale of home, condominium units, cooperative apartments and refinancing. The office also represents sellers and purchasers (aside from conventional transactions) with short sales, and foreclosures.

Commercial Property

We handle major issues that need to be addressed for our clients. We are here to suggest practical solutions to problems which may arise. These problems could include documents, title insurance, closings and post-closings.

Zoning and Land Use

Our firm handles issues with zoning, lot-line changes & minor subdivisions and major subdivisions. We are knowledgeable with zoning and land use laws in New York State. Our experience covers zoning board appeals, Planning Board, variances and limitations on zoning power.

Contaminated Property

We cover sales and lease agreements and try to resolve problems and concerns of both parties. We will work with all parties to reach an agreement concerning reporting requirements and cleanup programs for all environmental issues, including removal from NYDEC spill list. We will offer recommendations for remediation of these problems. In most cases sellers are required in both residential and commercial transactions to remove underground fuel storage tanks and establish an aboveground system. Most lenders will not close on behalf of a purchaser unless the seller has completed this task and can provide the appropriate documentation prior to the closing date.


The office will also prepare and negotiate commercial leases, and residential agreements.


As of June 2019, the eviction laws in New York State were greatly overhauled thereby and those changes place strict requirements on the landlord for non-payment and holdover proceedings. Our office represents both landlords and tenants in eviction cases.
