Having an experienced commercial real estate attorney review your deal before you proceed can save you from unnecessary legal expense and grief. Heres an example from an actual case Rubin handled

A client sought to purchase a property located slightly downhill from a manufacturing facility that had closed. Initial environmental tests revealed no hazards. Despite the preliminary test, which was based on determining the prior use of the upper level property, Rubin ordered additional testing which revealed toxic discharges.

After careful examination, it was determined that the flow of the toxic material would not impact the target downhill property being purchased, since the toxic discharges flowed around it. Potential liability was explored and exposed, and the Buyer proceeded to close, secure in the knowledge that the property would be free of toxic waste.

Just as in commercial transactions, a knowledgeable New York real estate lawyer can protect you from financial loss and heartache when you buy or sell a piece of property, or have construction work done in your home. Heres another of Rubin's success stories

An unscrupulous contractor tricked a homeowner into signing a contract for repair work, which was actually a mortgage on his house. When the repairs turned out to be faulty, the contractor refused to live up to his guarantee, and the client stopped making payments.

The swindle then became even more treacherous when the contractor sold the mortgage to a third party, and vanished. The third party promptly foreclosed on the house. Rubin immediately brought this illegal and unethical transaction to the attention of the Court, got the mortgage and note cancelled, and his client set free from making any further payments.

Since equity in the home represented a substantial portion of the client's net worth, Rubin literally not only saved the roof over his head, but also almost the entire financial base he had worked so hard to achieve.

Rubin Ferziger also provides Board of Director representation for cooperative apartment building and condominium associations. You can find out more about these services in the Co-op & Condo Apartment Board of Directors Representation.
