Nassau County Real Estate Lawyers

Serving Clients Throughout Long Island and New York

Winter & Grossman, PLLC draws on the extensive experience of its attorneys in representing clients in general and complex real estate transactions.

We have represented buyers and sellers in virtually all aspects of real estate transactions including the acquisition, sale, and financing of commercial, office and industrial buildings, as well as residential homes, cooperatives and condominiums. We are often called upon by our matrimonial clients to assist them with real estate matters since ex-spouses are often uncooperative and do not allow for an easy transaction or transition. We may also consider any amounts then owed as “arrears” to be satisfied in connection with the transaction.

Why You May Need a Real Estate Attorney

While realtors play a critical role in facilitating real estate transactions, having a real estate attorney by your side offers an added layer of security and expertise, especially in complex situations. Real estate attorneys are familiar with the legal aspects of buying and selling properties in ways a realtor may not be, ensuring that the transaction complies with state and federal laws. They can also handle complicated issues that might arise during a transaction, such as disputes over property borders, questions about prior ownership, or issues discovered during the title search. Furthermore, for transactions involving unique properties or commercial real estate, the knowledge and negotiating skills of an attorney can be invaluable in drafting and reviewing contracts, addressing zoning issues, and navigating the closing process. In essence, while realtors manage the transactional flow of buying or selling a property, real estate attorneys ensure the legal integrity of the transaction, protecting your rights and interests throughout the process.

What Real Estate Attorneys Do

Real estate attorneys focus on matters related to property, from transactions to disputes between parties involved in real estate deals. They possess a deep understanding of real estate law and offer expert advice and legal services to ensure that all aspects of a sale, purchase, lease, or other property transactions are legally sound and in their client’s best interest. Real estate attorneys play a crucial role in navigating the complex landscape of real estate law, dealing with various legal documents, resolving conflicts, and providing guidance through the many steps of real estate transactions and litigation.
