apartment buildings with front porches Buying, selling, or refinancing a home in NYC is a huge endeavor—complete with risk, anxiety…and sizable, tremor-inducing checks. So the last thing you need is a residential real estate lawyer who just shows up at your closing and tells you where to sign.

Prior to your signing anything, we ensure that your residential transaction receives the high level of attention and due diligence as our most complex commercial transactions.

As New York City residential real estate lawyers for over 35 years, we have conducted thousands of residential real estate closings—in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, and the surrounding boroughs and counties. We’ve dealt with condos and coops, single-family and multi-family homes, townhouses, vacation homes and acres of land in New York State and throughout the country.

Our experience is unparalleled. And we pair it with an even more powerful tool: patience.

At Cohen Schneider LLP, our residential real estate lawyers take the time to explain your transaction—with clarity, patience, and intelligence. If you don’t get it, we’ll use a different approach, and we will do so until we see you nodding.

As some of the most experienced real estate lawyers in New York City, we focus on saving you money. We’ve taught clients how to be savvier buyers. We’ve taught them how to ask questions—and make requests.

Once you pick a property, we request repairs and negotiate other big ticket items—prior to closing. Better to deal with that electrical issue now—rather than when you’re the one footing the bill.
