Real Estate Law
All real estate matters can be effectively handled by our Firm’s real estate attorneys. We represent first-time home buyers, banks, commercial lenders and can assist in every aspect of a real estate transaction. We provide representation for buyers and sellers, lenders and mortgage brokers. Additionally we regularly represent developers in presentations to planning and zoning boards on issues of re-zoning. We can also guide you through the Industrial Development Agency (IDA) process. We have also provided site placement services and legal assistance to publicly traded telecommunications carriers with respect to cell tower location issues.
The Firm is involved in real estate transactions throughout New York State, regularly advising buyers, sellers and lenders in Albany, Rensselaer, Columbia, Greene, Fulton, Montgomery, Saratoga, Schoharie, Warren and Washington counties – all located either in or near one of our offices.
The Firm is examining counsel for Chicago Title Insurance Company. In that capacity, Attorney James Towne and Diane Bennett, a paralegal in the Firm’s Saratoga office, can examine Abstracts of Title and title searches, prepare title reports and address and resolve title issues involving tax liens, boundary line and survey issues, legal descriptions of property, chain of title disputes, foreclosure and bankruptcy issues.
