Handling Condominium Ownership Issues in New York

Real estate deals often don't run smoothly and efficiently because important items are overlooked. I am an experienced New York City condominium attorney that can help you save time, aggravation, and disappointment.  I work closely with my clients in all aspects of their condominium New York transactions including property inspection, real estate broker agreements, contract  preparation,  negotiation, financing, and title and closings issues.

As a condominium lawyer in New York City, I have represented many clients regarding their purchase or sale of a condominium and work with them personally to achieve a successful result.

Condominium ownership is quite common in New York.  When you purchase a unit or apartment in a condominium you receive a deed, in the same manner as when you buy a house.  However, unlike owning a single family home, you are required to abide by the rules and regulations of the condominium management.

In many ways, owning a New York condominium is like owning a cooperative apartment since you are bound by the rules of the community.  Most condominium rules allow you to sell your unit to whomever you choose except that the condominium has a right of first refusal to purchase the unit at the proposed selling price.

Since you are part of the condominium community, it is important to research and review the condominium by-laws, rules and regulations and financial statements before you purchase.  A New York City condominium lawyer can help you conduct this research. The information provided in these documents can be complex and can effect the market value of your unit and your ability to obtain mortgage financing.

I am available to answer your questions or address any concerns you may have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Contact me now at (212) 355-2575 or e-mail us for an appointment with a condominium attorney in New York City.

Client Reviews
Jules Haas helped me with managing the process in probate court for my father's estate through to its completion upon the sale of my father's house. He was knowledgeable, efficient, and effective in submitting documentation to the probate court, explaining procedures to me, and advising me as to the progress of my case. His support staff was also very helpful. He made what for me created so much anxiety into something manageable where I could see progress every step of the way. His fees were very reasonable. I am super grateful to him for all the help he has provided and strongly recommend his services.

I found Mr. Haas after being misguided by a former attorney. Mr. Jules Haas took our case which involved an estate/trust dispute. What initially seemed like an impossible and overwhelming legal fight was now in the hands of someone who had the integrity and legal expertise to win our case. Mr Haas' attention to detail and his expert knowledge base, skillfully and successfully guided us through an intricate legal process. I am very thankful and grateful to Mr. Jules Haas for representing our interest and ultimately winning. Bringing about a peace of mind we needed. Thank You Devida Nedd
