Real estate attorneys handle “real property” transactions. This includes assistance during the purchase and sale of real estate properties such as single-standing homes, condominiums, co-ops, and land. In New York, transactions can quickly become complex. For instance, co-op sales often involve a background check and qualifications. Condos may involve tax abatement. This added layer of complexity means the attorneys you hire to handle your purchase or sale must understand NYC’s complex law, as well as sometimes complicated buyer and seller situations.
As experienced New York lawyers, Sishodia PLLC has many years of experience dealing with New York’s tough real estate market. We offer two convenient locations – New York City and Dutchess County, New York. We may be able to help you compare and find the best real estate deals that will fit your needs best. If you are unsure whether you will need an attorney for your upcoming real estate transactions, call to schedule a free consultation today.
A person who is purchasing a co-op is actually purchasing shares in the corporation that owns the building. Under the real estate law in New York, the actual apartment where you will live is yours through a proprietary lease. In a co-op you must pay taxes, repairs, and insurance in proportion to the shares you own. Co-op approvals can be notoriously difficult. Often, you may be required to provide bank statements, tax returns, professional references, and more.
Unlike in a condo, New York co-ops often limit how you sell or rent the apartment in which you live. Just as importantly, tax laws in a co-op can be complex and require a thorough understanding of co-ops and New York laws. Having knowledgeable New York attorneys on your side means you may be able to better understand the limitations and benefits of the co-op you are purchasing.
If you are selling a co-op in New York City navigating complex laws can be just as daunting. A flip tax is a tax that a seller may have to pay after a co-op sale in certain cases. In addition, out-of-state coop sellers may face additional challenges with income tax withholding at closing. A great attorney may be able to help you during every phase of the sale and keep the complex transaction flowing smoothly, as well as provide you with advice on how to minimize tax consequences.

What Our Clients Say:
This was actually my first purchase in NYC and I couldn’t have done it without the help of Natalia who guided me through every step of the way. She was always thoughtful and kept things light hearted even when things got to be stressful as home buying can be. She was happy to explain things so that I could be knowledgeable myself and was always looking out for my best interest. I’m looking forward to working with her on my future projects as I feel very lucky to have found her. Truly kind and I would like to recommend her services to anyone reading this.
I contacted Sishodia PLC about a commercial real estate deal that I’ve been trying to close. The lawyers here were very friendly and responded to my questions quickly. Ms. Sishodia gave me really sound advice. I would not hesitate to contact her again if I need help with my commercial real estate again. Thank you guys!
Ms. Sishodia is a first rate attorney. Her work was timely and flawless. She was extremely helpful and patient when opposing counsel was hi u clearly not up to the task at hand. Her knowledge of the relevant legal issues reflected a thorough understanding and vast experience. She also had real, financial sophistication which made her even more effective. An outstanding attorney who provided great value in every way.
I worked with Natalia as the buyers agent and was blown away with how attentive and professional she was throughout the process. She helped the deal stay on track even with a challenging seller and I plan to recommend her to more clients in the future.
Shawn (Long Island City Real Estate)
Natalia is a gem. Not only is she incredibly responsive, but also knowledgeable, accountable and incredibly professional.
I worked with her on the sale of my Manhattan apartment – she helped me navigate all the questions and confusion and truly was a partner to me!
I’d recommend her for any of your real estate legal needs.
Natalia was a pleasure to work with and that is saying something since she was on the opposite side of the transaction from my client. Very professional and responsive. A deal maker rather than a deal breaker.
It is important to distinguish between a condo and a co-op when you are looking for a new apartment in Brooklyn and anywhere in New York City. Just like in a co-op, a condo purchase includes common areas, such as hallways and elevators, and in some newer buildings a business center or a rooftop. The biggest difference between the two is that when buying a condo, the buyer actually buys a title to real estate and not stock in a corporation. In this case, a deed is issued to the condo unit being purchased by the buyer. The mortgage payments and real estate taxes are the responsibility of the owner. Although a condo board can still reject the application, in New York, this is relatively uncommon and the process of purchasing a condo is usually much easier than that of a co-op. However, an easier transaction often means that the price of a condo can be much higher than that of a co-op.
Whether you are buying or selling a condo it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side. The complex tax rules governing condos, recent tax abatement law changes, and other issues may arise during a purchase or sale of this residential property. By working closely with a top-rated attorney at Sishodia PLLC you can help minimize potential disputes, and help facilitate a quicker transaction.
