Real Estate

For over 100 years our firm has provided a wide array of real estate services which include representation of lenders, purchasers/buyers, sellers and developers in residential and commercial transactions. Our attorneys understand that the purchase of real property can be the single largest investment you will make. Our purchasing clients rely on our attorneys to guide them through the entire process including drafting and negotiating contracts, communicating with their mortgage lending bank, providing the proper due diligence investigation, securing title information and facilitating the actual closing. Our selling clients can also benefit from our experience of negotiating property inspection repairs, resolving marketable title issues, and working directly with financial lenders to approve a short sale. Our real estate attorneys and estate planning attorneys work collaboratively to structure and facilitate the succession plan of family camp and cottage ownership between generations.

The Firm is examining counsel for Westcor Land Title Insurance Company and Chicago Title Insurance Company. Our attorneys and title abstractors research land titles at the County Clerk’s Offices in Warren, Washington and Saratoga Counties, as well as Essex, Hamilton, Clinton and Franklin Counties.
