Long Island Real Estate Lawyer - Avenue Law Firm - NY Real Estate Attorneys

Featured In

For many residents, Long Island represents an amazing combination of advantages. Within the driving distance of the core of the city, it still preserves our desire for freedom, space, and a place to call our own. The quiet enjoyment of the beaches, the access to the water, and the islands off the coast cannot be undervalued. Perhaps most importantly, all of it can be enjoyed without giving up access to the constant hum and grind of Manhattan.

Unfortunately, that relative quiet does not extend to the real estate market, which is subject to immense volatility and the shadow of the immense pressures of the Manhattan real estate market nearby. In this environment, it is necessary that you work to protect yourself, and Avenue Law Firm is here to shoulder that work for you.

Avenue Law Firm’s skilled real estate lawyer Peter Zinkovetsky and our team of experienced real estate lawyers in Nassau County and Suffolk County are well-versed in the real estate transactions on Long Island and New York City. We can put our skills to use and help you make the most out of your deal.

Why Should I Hire a Long Island Real Estate Lawyer for My Real Estate Transactions?

Long Island, NY, is one of the most competitive and highly prized real estate markets in the entire United States. There is a tremendous amount of opportunity for both residential and commercial real estate investments on Long Island, but even natives of the area are likely to face challenges when it comes to navigating real estate transactions and handling the legal statutes that come into play. Therefore, if you plan on buying or selling real estate on Long Island, it’s vital to have an attorney for real estate that you can trust to advise you throughout the process.

An experienced Long Island real estate attorney can help you approach your transaction with confidence and reassurance. While you can rely on your real estate agent for professional guidance and support through many facets of your transaction, real estate agents face certain professional and ethical restrictions that may compel them to keep certain pieces of information from their clients. An experienced Nassau County or Suffolk County real estate lawyer can provide more expansive guidance and detailed information for a real estate transaction and help their client address the complex legal issues these transactions often present.

Avenue Law Firm’s real estate attorney Peter Zinkovetsky and our team of attorneys are experienced when it comes to navigating the real estate market and serving Long Island residents. We may be able to provide legal advice on what should be your next step and what options may be available to you in a real estate transaction. Whether it is commercial real estate or residential real estate, we are here to help.

Buying Property on Long Island, NY

With the relatively high demand in the area, many sellers will try to leverage that volatility to take advantage of your position as a purchaser. These decisions could carry a huge financial risk. At each turn in developing contracts and negotiations, there are opportunities for additional costs, responsibilities, and liabilities. Your real estate agent is likely to try and aid you in this, but there are distinct legal and ethical limits on what they are allowed to say to their clients. Additionally, a real estate agent may lack the legal training to identify all the potential risks in a particular contract or dealing in the first place.

Avenue Law Firm will work to draft contracts and riders that protect you at every phase of the process. In addition, we can help you determine the potential risks and benefits a transaction presents, assisting you in making a more confident and more informed decision. Purchasing any real estate on Long Island can be an incredible opportunity, but you need to approach the situation with caution. Avenue Law Firm can provide the legal counsel you can rely on to guide you through the purchasing process.

Attorney Peter Zinkovetsky and our team of NY lawyers also understand the complex nature of zoning regulations on Long Island. If you have a specific business purpose in mind for a property you wish to purchase, we’ll help you ensure that you can use the property as desired. If you’re purchasing residential property in Nassau County or Suffolk County, we can help you make a more informed decision and ensure the property suits your long-term needs and interests.

Selling a Property on Long Island

Selling the place where you have lived is never a casual endeavor. The memories, the work, and the life that you put into the place will always stay with it and you deserve these things to be valued accurately. In the Long Island real estate market, there is a panoply of rules and guidelines on selling different styles of homes and governing the expenses associated with selling your property. The attorneys at Avenue Law Firm will work with you to protect your ROI on your home by drafting contracts that protect you fully end to end.

Likewise, if you are selling a Long Island residential or commercial property and are looking to get the most the market can offer, we can ensure the value of the property you are selling is accurate. We understand the complexities of long-term strategies for property sales and will have your best interests in mind throughout the process.

Condos and Co-ops on Long Island

Condos and co-ops can present particularly difficult contracts for buyers and sellers in the Long Island area. Co-ops frequently have a long list of criteria for new residents, which poses a problem for those hoping to quickly move into their new homes. Whether your purchase is for yourself or to rent, understanding the criteria for occupancy is crucial. If either the buyer or seller is not prepared for these sorts of obstacles, these delays can easily run a previously smooth sailing deal aground. At Avenue Law Firm, we have extensive experience in negotiating these types of resident evaluations and can help to expedite the process by ensuring documentation is in order and by getting all parties on the same timetable regarding the evaluations. We understand the complexities of homeowner and condo associations, and we work to ensure your residency runs as smoothly as possible.


Another significant problem with co-op sales is that co-ops and condos frequently try to hold their residences accountable for aspects of the property that are by all rights the responsibility of the association. Knowing that you are on your way out, unscrupulous or inexperienced associations will attempt to saddle you with costs that do not belong to you. While careful reading on the part of the purchaser can prevent some of the difficulties, at its core, this is a job for an attorney. Often, just having an attorney from Avenue Law Firm present during a condo or co-op share purchase can prevent people from dealing unfaithfully. Likewise, a careful review of your paperwork can prevent you from running aground on any of these unknown caveats, costs, or upcharges.

Long Island Real Estate Litigation

The goal of every person in real estate is to have their transactions run smoothly, make the highest return on investment, and do so with the least amount of time investment possible. However, any time two or more parties come together with the goal of making or saving a great deal of money, there is the possibility that one of them will do something untoward (or even illegal) to achieve that goal. When this happens, bringing an attorney in after the fact can leave irreparable holes in documentation and fact gathering about the case, leaving you in a very poor position should you have to go to court. For these reasons, it is critical that you have a lawyer involved from day one on any Long Island real estate deals.

Having an Avenue Law Firm lawyer involved from the beginning ensures that your contracts and fact-finding are in order before you need it. It also means that we can identify potentially problematic cases early and head off the need for litigation, getting individuals to settle out of court for a lower cost than would have been incurred by less skilled hands. Regardless of what stage of the process you are in, should you need someone to represent you in court, you will find no more stalwart or capable defender in these matters than our firm.

What to Expect From an Experienced Long Island Real Estate Lawyer

When you choose Avenue Law Firm to represent you in any real estate transaction, you can expect personalized attention through every stage of your purchase or sale. Regardless of what your transaction entails, you can rely on our team of Long Island real estate lawyers to perform extensive research on the property, uncovering any potential risks or legal issues that may complicate your transaction.

We are also extensively experienced in handling real estate contracts. Whether you need to review or amend an existing contract or draft a new one for a pending transaction, we can help. Our team will thoroughly review all elements of the contract in question, clarify any discrepancies or concerns raised by any signing party, and help ensure the contract’s legal enforceability.

Should you for any reason need to go to court regarding a real estate transaction, our seasoned Long Island real estate attorneys can help you approach your case with confidence and peace of mind. In addition, we’ll prepare you for every courtroom appearance and help you gather whatever evidence may be necessary for solidifying your legal position in your case.

This firm went above and beyond to secure a real estate contract for us. They were so detail oriented and added beneficial clauses that I did not know existed. It really left me feeling a strong sense of security with the contract. I will absolutely be using them again.
