Partnering With Real Estate Brokers And Agents For Successful Transactions
Because the law mandates it, New York real estate brokers and agents have a long history of partnering with real estate attorneys for drafting and reviewing purchase and sales agreements. The state law says “none but attorneys” can ask for or receive compensation for preparing real estate deeds, leases, assignments, mortgages, mortgage discharges and other legal documents involving real estate transactions.
Most brokers and agents are generally well-versed in compliance and adhering to the short deadlines for contingency negotiations, arranging property inspections, aligning title searches and helping their clients close their transactions successfully. At Duggan & Pawlowski LLP, we help real estate brokers and agents representing buyers or sellers avoid missteps and missing deadlines that could result in misdemeanor charges, fines or suspension of their licenses.

In addition to preparing and reviewing purchase and sales agreements, conditional sales contracts, deeds and other legal instruments for real estate transactions, our attorneys provide a full range of legal services for agents and brokers, such as:
