New Jersey Real Estate Lawyers

Representing the Rights of Buyers and Sellers throughout New Jersey

Real estate transactions can often involve hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars, and in many cases, a home will be the largest purchase a person will make in his or her lifetime. These transactions are often extremely complicated and involve many different and sophisticated parties, including mortgage lenders, real estate agents, appraisers, and tenants. Furthermore, the value of real estate can be highly affected by legal restrictions as to the way that the property can be developed or used.

Due to the complexity of real estate transactions and the amount of money that can be at stake, it is critical for anyone who is a party to one to retain an experienced lawyer. At Cozzi & Cozzi, we handle all aspects of real estate law, including the following:

  • Contract negotiation and review
  • Determining whether the property is subject to any encumbrances, such as liens, easements, covenants, or deed restrictions
  • Representation of buyers or sellers at closing
  • Zoning disputes and administrative matters
  • Construction disputes
  • Condo conversions
  • Home Owner Association Disputes
  • Land use restrictions

Going into a real estate transaction without having an attorney fully review it could result in financial disaster. Imagine, for example, you wish to operate a business on a property that is zoned as mixed use, but after purchasing it, find out that you cannot operate that particular type of business on the property due to a local ordinance. By retaining an attorney, you can ensure that these types of issues will be uncovered. Additionally, your lawyer may be able to petition the local governing body for a zoning variance that may allow you to operate the business in spite of the local ordinance. In either case, the assistance of a skilled lawyer can make sure that you go into a potential transaction aware of all of the relevant facts that may affect your decision.

A Top Law Firm for Buying Property in New Jersey

If you are considering buying real estate, you should be certain to speak with an attorney before signing any documents. A real estate purchase that goes wrong could cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars, even if you are purchasing a relatively modest piece of residential property. As a buyer, you often have more to lose than the seller, as you could potentially be stuck with a devalued piece of real estate should significant issues arise after the sale has been completed.

Some people may be under the mistaken impression that having both a real estate agent and a real estate lawyer is redundant. While real estate agents perform an important and helpful role in representing buyers and sellers, they are not required to have the legal training of a licensed attorney. As a result, they cannot provide legal advice and may miss important issues regarding the legal status of the property you are considering buying. While there may be an upfront cost associated with hiring a real estate attorney when buying property, it can save you significant time and money in the future by avoiding entering into an ill-advised deal or addressing potential issues prior to closing.
