I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.

NYC Real Estate Transactions Lawyer

If you’re buying or selling real estate, it’s important that you involve an attorney. The real estate agents will be responsible for recording the costs and negotiations, but the attorneys have the responsibility of drafting the final contract. A sale contract for real estate is legally binding. It will cover a number of different areas, including the property’s address, any included personal items, the negotiated price, your payment plan, and any other important information for the sale.

You need an attorney to help draft and review the contract. They’ll double check to make sure all the information is accurate and legally binding. The other party will also have a lawyer, who will work with your attorney to create your agreed-upon contract.

What Exactly Is a Real Estate Lawyer?

Real estate attorneys are lawyers whose main area of expertise is in real estate transactions. They have in-depth information about both basic and complex rules and regulations regarding sales. Your attorney can help you negotiate to an ideal selling or buying price, and they can also make sure that all legal requirements for the sale have been followed.

When you intend to sign the contract, your attorney will sit down with you and explain the terms paragraph by paragraph. They’ll also explain any other legal transfer of ownership documents you might need to file. If any zoning issues arise, your real estate attorney is the one to negotiate the dispute.

A real estate attorney might work with both individuals and companies. If you’re buying a house for yourself, you’ll have your attorney explain the terms; the same is true if you’re buying a store for your business with company funds.

Circumstances That Warrant a Real Estate Attorney

Any real estate transaction should be overseen by a competent attorney. If you’re dealing with a short sale or foreclosure, you’ll want your attorney to make sure your rights are protected throughout the process. Conversely, if you want to purchase property that the bank owns, the attorney can guide you through the complex legal waters.

In any transaction, the entity lending you money may ask you to have an attorney double check the legality of the property’s title. Your title company may also voice this concern. Also, if you have any intention of purchasing or selling a commercial property, an attorney should handle the transaction. There are a great deal of complex rules regarding the tax filing status for a company, along with regulations for tenant relationships.

When you file for bankruptcy or a judgment is filed against you, your best option is to get in touch with a lawyer who can advise you. Another possible circumstance involves a real estate team navigating the legal waters of a property that is part of an estate, vulnerable to natural disasters, or has issues with environmental contaminates.

There are some rare cases where you might be able to squeak by without an attorney. Real estate agents don’t receive their official license until they’ve received thorough training regarding standard legal documents for a buyer and seller to file. As long as your real estate agent has prior experience and good credentials, and the transaction is fairly standard, you might find that an attorney isn’t necessary for the process.

Costs of Real Estate Lawyers

Some people want to handle their real estate transactions themselves to save money on legal costs. This is especially true for people who are dealing with financial hardship. Unfortunately, these are the people who will be hurt most if a contract is executed improperly. An understanding of real estate lawyer fees might help to put your mind at ease.

Some attorneys charge a flat fee, but an hourly fee can sometimes be upwards of $400. With that said, real estate attorneys help keep you calm during the transaction process. You know that all of the information has been recorded properly, that you haven’t been tricked into buying less than you paid for, and that you’ve completed all the relevant paperwork. That peace of mind can be worth $400, especially considering moving is one of the most stressful ordeals a person will ever go through.

New York Requires the Presence of a Real Estate Attorney

Across the United States, there are different state regulations regarding the presence of an attorney. New York is one state that requires sellers and homebuyers to have their lawyer present when they sign their sale contract. So even if you wanted to skip the legal costs, the New York state legislature won’t let you.

You should double check to be sure that you’re able to cover your attorney fees. You should also investigate the background of your lawyer before you hire them. An ideal lawyer has experience negotiating real estate contracts and a good track record with their clients.

Information Included on the Transaction Contract

Transaction contracts can get lengthy, especially when complex property sales are involved. Even for simple property sales, a great deal of information must be denoted. Most transactions will have sections for the following:

Information about the property, including its street address and size
Information about any structures or buildings on the property
Information about any personal property included in the purchase price
Inspection history and reports
Agreed-upon sale price
The payment plan for the loan
Signatures of the realtors, the buyer, the seller, and a notary
NYC Real Estate Litigation Lawyer

Real estate litigation in New York City involves high damages, numerous regulations and multiple parties. Especially for disputes, clients should deliberate on retaining the services from a knowledgeable attorney. We have represented clients from all walks of life and from a variety of disputes. The practices and transactions have played a big role.

Breaching the Contract

When it comes to a lawyer, you want someone who can aggressively and skillfully represent you in the event of a legal conflict. Some of the conflicts we have dealt with include leases, purchase agreements, license agreements and other claims on a contract. Lawyers with real estate litigation have the option to represent the landlord or the tenant. In some cases, a tenant might have the right to real estate litigation if the contract wasn’t upheld. For example, the lease was violated based on a lack of providing the essential services like heating, repairing or securing the property. We have also looked at cases with property damage, lease expiration, failure to pay rent and nuisance complaints.

Partition Actions

One element of our legal representation comes down to partition actions where the property gets divided based on the interests of the owner. For example, the clients have a common ownership in a property, and they want to divide this property to reflect the individual ownership of it. The actions could result in an actual sale of the property where the proceeds are divided or a buyout of the property.

Recission and Reformation

Whenever recission comes up, you could consider it a remedy to cancel existing contracts, and it restores the parties back to its previous position before entering the contract. You might seek a recision because of fraudulent or innocent misrepresentation and undue influence. This can also happen as a result of a mutual mistake or because of a lack of capacity. Sometimes you have cases where the deed, contract or written instrument doesn’t conform to what the parties had agreed to, and in these circumstances, one party has the option to seek out an equitable remedy for reformation.

When it comes to legal disputes, our real estate litigation lawyers can represent either side of the dispute, and they can many times negotiate settlements with this need for costly litigation on top of it. Our attorneys understand how to skillfully handle the legal situation with reformation and recision.

Boundary Disputes and Quiet Title Actions

Perhaps you want to prosecute quiet title claims to properties, and you also want to establish the lien rights and the ownership. Our lawyers represent the property owners, but we can also represent the neighbors who have a conflict over fences, trees, setbacks or a boundary issue.

Declaratory Judgment actions and Injunctive Relief

When someone requires a court order to prevent parties from taking objectionable actions now or into the future, they must take immediate affirmative action. Our lawyers can petition the courts, and we will seek a mandatory preliminary injunction. The declaratory judgment will validate the ownership claims, the assertion of rights and it will look at rent regulatory status.

Mortgage Disputes and Foreclosures

Sometimes a mortgage dispute or a foreclosure pops up and the lender wants to take action, be it for commercial or residential properties. We will represent either the lien holders of the dispute or the property owners themselves and look at the terms on the mortgage to reach a conclusion.

Shareholder Derivative

Sometimes the directors and the shareholders become firmly planted in a litigation case where both of them have a legal battle. The shareholders might claim that the director breached the fiduciary duty. In addition, shareholders also have the right to claim waste of corporate assets, and they can claim the abuse of control. When the director’s conduct comes into question, they will be governed based on loyalty. This will prohibit the director from collecting profits that will put more expenses on the behalf of the corporation. In other cases, the director might have failed to honestly manage the assets, which leads to a breach in the duty of care to its corporation. Our lawyers understand the intricacies of the law, and we will work hard to aggressively represent you in the courts.

You need someone who can stand by your side to keep you protected. When you visit with us, we will give you experienced real estate litigation that protects you. Schedule an appointment today, and Spodek Law Group will look at the specifics of your case to determine the best course of action. We understand the complexities of the law, and we will use this understanding to defend your rights in the court system. We know how to effectively argue for reversals and decisions that will be in your favor.
