For most of us, buying or selling a home is a very exciting experience, but one that, because it is one of the largest financial transactions of our lives, is very stressful. Dan Heyman has been representing home buyers and sellers in New York City and its suburbs for more than 30 years, at very reasonable rates. He is not affiliated with any real estate brokers, so there is no conflict of interest. Your needs and rights are primary.
If you are buying or selling a condo (condominium) or coop (cooperative) apartment or a private home, Dan Heyman will provide you with personal representation. He will negotiate and draft (if you are the Seller) or negotiate and edit (if you are the Purchaser) the provisions of the Contract of Sale. He will be available to answer all of your questions concerning the legal aspects of the transaction (there are aspects of the purchase and sale - such as the negotiation of the sale price - that your real estate broker will handle.) Dan will arrange for the title search and title insurance, if you wish. He will attend the closing of title with you once he has done everything possible to make sure that the closing will proceed smoothly.
Dan Heyman is an experienced real estate litigator. He is therefore especially mindful of the pitfalls in a purchase and sale transaction that can lead to disputes between a purchaser and seller and he does everything in his power to avoid them.
A dictionary definition of “litigation” is “carrying on a legal contest by judicial process”. It simply means having a court decide the dispute; participating in a lawsuit. Real estate litigation is a lawsuit involving real property (land, buildings, a house, an apartment). The underlying dispute may arise during a purchase and sale of a house, condominium or coop apartment, it may arise from a lease, a disagreement between adjoining landowners, a dispute with a real estate broker or any other dispute involving property. If you believe that you may have a claim concerning real estate or if you are involved in such a dispute or have already been served with a summons and complaint, call Dan Heyman to discuss your matter with an experienced real estate litigator.
