     When relationships end there are often uncomfortable finical issues that must be addressed. For example, you may jointly own property with your ex-wife, ex-husband, ex-fiancee or ex-partner, but he/she refuses to sell the property or buy your share. Or a loved one may have passed away while he/she jointly owned real property with another person. For over 15 years, I have successfully assisted co-owners of New York property and helped them recoup hundreds of thousands of dollars in equity.

     In one case, my client unsuccessfully tried for three years to convince her ex-husband to sell their jointly owned property. Within six months after I was hired I was able to get the property sold and get my client hundreds of thousands of dollars as her share of the equity from the jointly owned property. In another case, I started a partition action and won a judgment that required my client's reluctant ex-partner to sell their co-owned property. Again, as a result my client received hundreds of thousands of dollars. I also won a constructive trust and conversion case in which my client's brother improperly transferred the deed to their jointly owned property to a company that my client's brother controlled. As a result of the judgment that I won for my client, he was able to recoup years of lost rent and to regain joint control over the co-owned property.

     Whether your case requires negotiating a buyout of your interest in co-owned property or a court order requiring the sale of jointly owned property, I, and my team of licensed and experienced real estate professionals, will make sure you get your share of jointly owned property. Contact me immediately to secure your rights because getting you your fair share is my business.

     Buying and selling property is among the most important, and potentially, profitable decisions that most of us ever make. Such an important decision should not be left to chance. I have successfully represented dozens of buyers and sellers of reals estate. My clients include buyers and sellers of co-ops, condos, single and multiple-family units, commercial spaces, and mixed use properties. I have successfully closed short sales transactions, as well as multi-million dollar property purchases, assisted estates in selling properties, and closed both residential and commercial sales. I ensure that my clients' questions are answered, that they are fully apprised of their rights, that the real estate contract is binding, and that the deal actually proceeds to a closing. Regardless of the type of real estate transaction, contact me to close your real estate deal and to make sure that your interests are protected.
