Singh Law Firm is a boutique firm founded in 2012. Our real estate lawyers in New York have more than 45 years of combined experience. In addition to that extensive legal background, our founding partners have all either run public companies or served on the board of directors. They know applicable law and procedure, but they also have a nuanced understanding of how legal and business affairs intersect with each other. That understanding informs all of their legal strategies, and they want to work with you next.
The basic responsibility of a real estate lawyer is to do a thorough review of all the documents involved with the transaction. This review ought to include checking for any liens that are outstanding on the property (if the client is the purchaser) dealing with insurance matters and preparing the deed.
When the lawyer has extensive experience, they are able to add more value for their client, going beyond document review and into the realm of analysis and recommendations. Real estate counsel can be involved in helping to secure financing, either for the purchase of the real estate itself, or whatever business activity is planned for the property. Sharp attention to detail and savvy analysis are the hallmarks of a good real estate attorney.
One of the biggest issues an attorney might have to deal with in a transaction is the basic one of communication. At Singh Law Firm, our lawyers are exceptionally communicative with our clients. But it’s also important to ensure that the communication lines are open with the other party involved in the deal. A lack of communication can result in anything from a failure to disclose, to inaccurate information, to an assortment of other legal issues. The more negotiations a real estate lawyer has been through, the more they can ferret out potential problems in advance and protect the best interests of their client.
