Experienced Norwalk Attorneys Assisting Clients with Home Closings, Purchases, Construction Issues, and Litigation

Our Residential Real Estate Department is experienced in assisting clients throughout Fairfield and Westchester Counties and New York City in their residential real estate transactions, from the first-time home purchaser to the sophisticated developer. We assist clients in the mortgaging and refinancing of their properties and are approved closing counsel for many lenders, including being the primary Connecticut counsel for mortgage closings for three of the Northeast's major banks. We also act as national title insurance agents for several title insurance companies.

Our firm has one of the largest residential real estate practices in the area, servicing clients from the pre-contract and contract negotiation stage through the completion of the closing and beyond, with respect to the client's future plans for their property. During this process, we advise and assist the client with the proper completion and submission of the ever-changing documentation required in today's market while being cognizant of the time constraints and changing circumstances which are part of the residential real estate process. We regularly advise our clients regarding any construction, zoning, environmental, land use, and title issues that may arise. Additionally, we actively negotiate lease agreements on behalf of both the landlords and tenants whom we represent.
