New York Lawyers Guard Your Interests in Residential Real Estate Deals
Representing landlords, tenants, buyers and sellers
In the volatile world of New York City residential real estate, circumstances can change fast. Buying your first home or negotiating with tenants can be a challenging process. The residential real estate attorneys at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP represent people on either side of real estate transactions and protect them from mistakes and malfeasance.
Common issues related to residential real estate
A host of issues may arise while buying, selling or renting a home, including:
- Eviction. When tenants don’t pay or have otherwise violated the lease agreement, the owner has the right to evict them. This requires giving notice to the tenants and, if necessary, going to court to have the eviction enforced.
- Security deposits. Disputes over security deposits and who is responsible for repairing damage can be issues for both tenants and owners. A landlord has 45 days to return a deposit and is allowed to charge tenants only for excessive wear or damage.
- For sale by owner. Some homeowners choose to sell property themselves instead of going through a broker or agent. This can save thousands of dollars in fees. But both the buyer and the seller may be at risk of violating residential real estate laws if they fail to have a knowledgeable real estate lawyer review the contract.

Our attorneys have decades of experience with rent control issues and claims of rent overcharges.
