Experienced Attorneys on Long Island Assisting with Real Estate Transactions

Real estate lawyers providing support from inception to closing, for individuals and businesses in Suffolk and Nassau Counties and across Long Island

The process of buying or selling a home or business property is complex. It requires a detailed understanding of the rules governing everything from selecting a property for purchase to signing a mountain of paperwork at the closing. Without this knowledge, you can end up incurring hefty unexpected costs or even owning property that is inappropriate for your intended use.

The attorneys and legal assistants in the Real Estate department at Jakubowski, Robertson, Maffei, Goldsmith & Tartaglia, LLP are dedicated to giving personal attention to each transaction, from inception to closing. Our firm is skilled and experienced in complex commercial and residential transactions, short sales, 1031 exchanges and other matters related to real estate. Our services also include negotiating complex commercial leases.

Full support for closings of residential and commercial real estate

Whether you are buying your first home or purchasing specialized real estate for use in your business, our real estate attorneys can make sure you enter into agreements that are beneficial and meet all state and local zoning and land-use requirements. We make sure that your closing contains no surprises that can affect you now or later on.

Short sale assistance

Lost jobs and other consequences of the recent economic downturn placed many mortgages in jeopardy, and they put some homeowners in danger of foreclosure on their homes. Given these realities, a short sale can offer distinct advantages for property owners. But many issues, such as tax implications or problems getting a lender to agree to a short sale, can complicate the short sale process. Our Long Island real estate attorneys take the time to educate you on the advantages and disadvantages of making this decision. If you decide to pursue a short sale, we advocate on your behalf throughout the process.

Helping businesses delay taxes through 1031 property exchanges

Businesses can face high tax liabilities when they sell commercial property that has appreciated in value since it was initially purchased. But, as Lawyers.com explains, a business can delay tax liabilities by exchanging the property with an owner of like-kind property. Referred to as 1031 exchanges, these transactions can delay taxes until a business sells the new property acquired through the exchange. But the law imposes very strict requirements on 1031 transactions. Our experienced real estate attorneys have a detailed understanding of all legal requirements involved and can guide businesses through these complex transactions.
