The complexity of New York real estate laws

Even a simple home purchase involves a maze of New York legal requirements relative to title issues, financing, and potential complications during the closing. Co-op buyers must also pay heed to a range of finance issues, rental policies, and other provisions of the by-laws before they step into situations that do not meet their original intentions. And when buying commercial property, you need a detailed knowledge of zoning requirements and even the activities of neighboring businesses to help ensure your new property can meet your business requirements without incurring significant expenses down the road.

At Rubin & Licatesi, P.C. we provide support for a full range of legal issues beyond just the purchase or sale of residential or commercial property, including the following:

  • Mortgage banking:  Our firm has the approval needed to act as closing attorneys for a long list of mortgage bankers in New York.
  • Loan modification:  We help navigate the complexities of the Making Home Affordable program introduced by the Federal government in 2009 to help homeowners potentially use this program to avoid foreclosure. And we can often help with other solutions when individuals do not meet the program qualifications
  • Foreclosure:  Due to the recent economic downturn, countless financially responsible individuals face lost income or other unexpected serious financial setbacks that put their homes at risk. A Long Island foreclosure lawyer at Rubin & Licatesi, P.C., has the legal knowledge and experience needed to work with your lender to help develop a rescue plan to meet your financial goals.
  • Bankruptcy: Concerned attorneys who help clients focus on their debt and the options available
  • Estate Planning & Elder Law: Assisting our senior clients in developing trust and estate planning and wills for those to receive the care they need
  • Consumer & Civil Litigation: Representing our clients to protect and preserve their rights in disputes and in contract matters.
