Buying real estate is one of the most important investments, individuals, entrepreneurs and business owners can make. Dealing with the complications of housing laws requires experienced counsel to offer legal advice and representation. Retaining an attorney is vital for both the buyer and the seller.  Real estate transactions involve a wide range of clients – from first-time home buyers to land developers, builders and commercial landlords. All real estate transactions involve important issues with long-term ramifications. Real estate contracts need to be drafted or amended to protect against a wide variety of possibilities and potential pitfalls, including the right to a detailed home inspection, pest infestation and environmental findings, title defects and restrictions, insurance requirements, and mortgage and related financing and refinancing issues. 

Allen Susser and Mercedes Diego combined have more than 60 years of experience with real estate transactions, including negotiating the terms of a contract, acting as settlement agent, and working with realtors, home inspectors, mortgage lenders and insurance agents. Our firm assists our clients from contract preparation and review through post closings, always protecting our clients’ rights and interests. If you are thinking of buying or selling real estate, contact Cohn Lifland today.

Residential transactions, such as the purchase of a house, are often the largest investment an individual or family may make.  Our Real Estate attorneys are well-versed in New Jersey laws and guide our clients through purchases, sales, leases, rentals and refinancing, as well as any disputes, lawsuits, litigation or foreclosures that might arise.  Our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to successfully guide clients through the process with ease and comfort.  We handle all aspects of a transaction from the initial attorney review, thorough document review and preparation of the conveyance documents, to attendance at the closing.

Commercial transactions involve unique hazards that need to be navigated. For example, the sale or leasing of commercial properties such as office buildings, warehouses, shopping centers, manufacturing facilities and apartments requires the review of a myriad of potential problems, such as environmental contamination, tenancy problems, and title and land use restrictions. Our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to successfully guide clients through the process.  Our real estate attorneys are well-versed and experienced in 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges, which allow for tax benefits when selling and purchasing like-kind properties.
