Whether you are facing foreclosure, have a problem with a landlord or tenant, or need legal guidance regarding the purchase of residential property, a real estate lawyer can be a valuable advocate in representing your interests. David J. Lorber & Associates, PLLC, in Setauket, New York, is ready to help you with any real estate law matter you need addressed.

Capable lawyer provides detailed advice regarding property matters

David J. Lorber & Associates, PLLC can address all your real estate concerns, including the following:

  • Foreclosures — If a lender has filed a foreclosure lawsuit against you or you are having trouble making your mortgage payment, our firm can guide you through the process or advise you regarding alternatives to foreclosure. It may be that a loan modification, mortgage modification, short sale or even a Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be a better option for you.
  • Landlord-tenant disputes — Many issues between New York landlords and tenants can be resolved with common sense and knowledge of the law. We aim to resolve even the most complex landlord-tenant disputes through negotiation, mediation or, if necessary, litigation. Whether your legal problem relates to rent control, security deposit or rent withholding, eviction, landlord retaliation, or any other rental dispute, we can help.
  • Residential home sales transactions — We can help you with drafting contracts, reviewing lending documents, searching and clearing title, dealing with  zoning restrictions and conducting closings. Our firm will advise you of your responsibilities and ensure that you are compliant with applicable state law, including what you must disclose about property conditions and defects when selling a home. And, if you bought a new home with a construction defect, we can explore whether you are protected under New York law.

If you are considering putting your home on the market or are attending to another matter that falls within real estate law, we can help you avoid the common pitfalls that beset many New Yorkers in these transactions, including concerns that fall under federal landlord-tenant laws, such as environmental health hazards and discrimination.
