Real Estate Transactions

Seltzer Sussman Heitner represent buyers and sellers, and lessors and lessees of residential and commercial real property. The purchase or sale of a home is, to some people, the most important transaction of their life. Therefore, we provide very personalized attention to our clients to assure that the client understands and is comfortable with each and every aspect of the transaction. Our highly skilled staff and attorneys are always readily available to discuss and walk through each phase of the deal, from choosing a broker, to negotiating a deal, to preparation or negotiation of the contract of sale, to working through title issues, to preparing for and attending the closing and any post-closing issues that may arise. We have experience with the most modest of transactions to purchases and sales of multi-million dollar homes, condominiums, co-operatives and commercial buildings.

A large portion of our practice is also devoted to commercial leasing.  Our firm represents both landlords and tenants and, as tenant’s counsel, we have negotiated leases with virtually all of the major landlords in the Untied States.  We have also represented co-op sponsors and co-op boards with respect to virtually every issue involving cooperative apartments.

Unfortunately, some real estate transactions break down and result in litigation. We are experienced litigators in the field of real estate litigation including enforcement of contracts, time of essence demands, fraudulent conveyances and related contests.
