What Does a New York Real Estate Attorney Do?

Real estate attorneys handle “real property” transactions.  This includes assistance during the purchase and sale of single standing homes, condominiums, co-ops and land.  In NY City, 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 residential purchase or sale must understand NYC’s complex law, as well as sometimes complicated buyer and seller situations.  As experienced NYC lawyers, Sishodia PLLC have many years of experience dealing with New York’s tough RE market. We offer two convenient locations – New York City Real Estate Attorney and Real Estate Attorney Dutchess County, NY.  If you are unsure whether you will need a lawyer for your upcoming transaction, call to schedule a free consultation today at:

Sishodia Manhattan Real Estate Attorney - Co-op Specialists and More

A person who is purchasing a co–op is actually purchasing shares in the corporation that owns the building. Under the law, 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, NYC 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 NYC laws.  Having knowledgeable Manhattan 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:

Sishodia Brooklyn Real Estate Lawyers - Condos and Beyond

It is important to distinguish between a condo and a co-op when you are looking for a new apartment in Brooklyn, Manhattan 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 NYC 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.
