Residential Real Estate

Any residential real estate transaction, whether the purchase or sale of a single-family or multi-family home, a townhouse, co-op, or condominium, storage unit, terrace, or vacant land, requires navigating a host of issues. For this reason, it is essential to work with an experienced attorney who can protect your rights and secure your investment. At Scaffidi & Associates, we have experience in all phases of residential real estate deals, from arranging home inspections, reading board minutes and financials, and reviewing Purchase and Sales Agreements, to performing title searches and conducting closings.

When it comes to a contract of sale, we work to ensure that our clients’ interests are protected. In particular, a well-designed agreement will include provisions that protect a buyer from losing a deposit in the event that financing cannot be obtained. Additionally, all contracts must abide by state and local laws, and be transaction specific in order to meet the needs of each client.

We recognize that buying or selling a home can be a stressful process and we work to ensure that the intended deal proceeds smoothly. Our real estate attorneys also routinely prepare all the necessary legal documents, including purchase agreements and riders, as well as all necessary closing documents. Given the fact that buying or selling a home is the single largest financial transaction, many individuals will ever undertake, having the counsel of our real estate team is invaluable.

Commercial Real Estate

The commercial real estate market is far more complex than the residential market, and is also subject to a number of federal, state and local laws and regulations. Moreover, transactions involving office buildings, apartment complexes, retail space, and other commercial properties depend on factors such as zoning, title clearance and financing.

Our attorneys have experience preparing construction-related documents for all types of projects and routinely work with our clients’ team of architects, engineers, construction managers, general contractors, and project managers. Although we prefer to reach negotiated settlements, if a dispute arises, we are fully prepared to litigate land-use matters.
