New York City Residential Real Estate Lawyers

Whether you are buying or selling a single or multi-family home, a condominium, or a co-op, it takes an experienced real estate attorney to protect your interests. At Woods Lonergan, we guide clients through all aspects of residential property transactions, including:

  • Coordinating home inspections
  • Reviewing real estate contracts
  • Arranging for financing
  • Conducting closings

The purchase of residential real estate is often the single largest financial investment for many of our clients; we work to remove the stress from the process by providing our clients with informed representation and dependable service.

Representing Clients in Commercial Real Estate Transactions

Commercial real estate transactions involve a higher level of complexity than residential transactions, which makes it crucial to work with an experienced commercial real estate attorney. Whether you are buying, selling, leasing, or developing commercial property, our knowledgeable attorneys can advise you on matters such as:

  • Zoning and land use
  • Environmental regulations
  • Title clearance
  • Structured financing (e.g., syndicated mortgage loans, bond-type financing)
  • Property taxes
  • Insurance coverage

We have extensive experience handling the purchase and sale of office buildings, apartment complexes, shopping centers, and other commercial properties and will work closely with you to ensure the intended transaction closes expediently. If you are seeking to rent space for your business, we can help to find a suitable property and negotiate favorable lease terms.

Above all, our legal team will provide you with sophisticated advice that allows you to make informed business decisions. In the event of disputes, we are fully prepared to represent your interests through mediation, arbitration, or real estate litigation. 

New York City Condominium and Cooperative Lawyers

Woods Lonergan serves as General Counsel to condominiums and cooperatives and provides trustworthy advice to boards of directors and managers of residential communities. We regularly prepare corporate documents (e.g., bylaws, proprietary leases, subleases, alteration agreements, house rules) and work to ensure co-op and condo boards exercise prudent judgment and adhere to internal rules. Our attorneys also conduct condo and co-op closings, and, when necessary, pursue and defend claims involving the co-op or condominium associations, unit owners, and shareholders.

Real Estate Development

Because real estate development in the New York City area is governed by evolving local, state, and federal laws, you need the dedicated attorneys at Woods Lonergan at your side. We rely on a multidisciplinary approach that calls on our real estate, business, and corporate practice groups to collaborate in structuring joint venture agreements for the development of all types of real estate projects. Our attorneys will also work closely with your team (e.g., architects, engineers, design consultants, general contractors, project managers) to ensure your development project proceeds smoothly. 

Representing NYC Construction Professionals in Real Estate Transactions

Our legal team understands the complex issues facing construction professionals and works to find innovative, cost-effective solutions regarding matters such as:

  • Owner disputes
  • Mechanic liens (enforcement and removal)
  • Construction defects (elevator, roofing, plumbing, electrical, siding)
  • Contract disputes
  • Property boundary disputes
  • Easements
  • Construction designs

We regularly represent purchasers and sellers in construction ventures involving multiple parties and diversified properties (e.g., commercial, industrial, retail) and handle complex multi-party claims in alternative dispute resolution methods, including arbitration, mediation, and dispute review boards. While many construction disputes can be resolved through settlement negotiations, our trial lawyers are well-prepared to provide you with aggressive courtroom representation if necessary.
