Kingston Residential Real Estate Transaction Attorney
Buying or selling a home, apartment, or condominium is an important step in anyone’s life. Such events are often part of a big life shift involving a new job, a new location, or new family circumstances. Real estate transactions involve a significant investment of time and money, and the legal processes and procedures surrounding even the most simple-sounding real estate sale or purchase can be complex and opaque. If you are not a commercial developer, you will likely only encounter these issues once or twice in your lifetime. Buying or selling a home is often the single biggest financial transaction many individuals will ever undertake. You are likely not and should not have to be a legal expert in order to buy or sell your house. The experienced New York residential real estate transaction attorneys at Rusk, Wadlin, Heppner & Martuscello are here to shoulder the legal burden and let you focus on your home, your finances, and your family.
Tailoring representation to the parties, properties, and circumstances of your transaction
Our New York residential real estate transactional lawyers are here to negotiate and draft custom-tailored deal documents on your behalf, protecting your interests and ensuring that all aspects of the transaction are properly accounted for. A properly drafted agreement can protect a buyer from losing an investment in the event that financing cannot be obtained, or protect a seller against paying damages if issues regarding title or zoning become an obstacle. Your documents should be specific to your transaction, accounting for all state and local laws, regulations, zoning requirements, as well as for the specifics of the buyers, sellers, and properties involved.
Our goal is to ensure that your real estate transaction progresses as smoothly as possible. We will outline, prepare, draft, collect and review all documents and agreements necessary to effectuate a transaction and help you navigate every step of the process. We provide representation and advice across a variety of residential real estate topics, including:
- Drafting purchase or sale agreements
- Acquisition of residential properties in New York
- Mortgages and real estate financing
- Review title reports for issues such as extant liens, unpaid taxes, or breaks in title
- Drafting and negotiating residential leases
- Reviewing purchase, sale, or lease agreements
- Providing legal help and guidance through real estate closings

- Drafting, reviewing, and interpreting condominium or cooperative agreements
Crossing the I’s and dotting the T’s of a real estate closing
Real estate closings are among the most important services provided by New York real estate attorneys.

Your dedicated residential real estate attorney will help you by checking off all of the necessary boxes, including:
- Conducting a title search prior to closing
- Preparing the paperwork for changing the title and deed
- Determining the exact, appropriate sum necessary to close, including all applicable costs and fees
- Reviewing all closing documents for completeness and error
- Conducting the settlement between the parties
- Recording the transaction with the county to ensure the title change takes place
