Real Estate and Property Management
We represent both commercial clients and individuals in all proceedings and transactions that deal with real property – land and the structures attached to it – including purchase and sale, construction, mortgages and foreclosures, refinancings, exchanges, leases, zoning, title examinations, quiet title actions, closings, and management. Attorneys at “KONSTANDINIDIS & Associates” Law Firm have the versatility to deal with transactions that go from the very simple to the very sophisticated.
Commercial real estate matters often call for knowledge in specialized and related areas of law. As a multidisciplinary firm, we have the professional staff and resources to address a far-reaching scope of questions. Our real estate attorneys often work with members of the firm’s corporate, banking and litigation areas to provide our clients with a complete range of legal services.
Real Estate Litigation
Our firm provides a full range of real estate litigation services to commercial and individual clients. We represent developers, owners, property managers, tenants, financial institutions and investors in all types of disputes, including those arising from:
- Partnership and Shareholder Disputes
- Brokerage commissions
- Construction contracts
- Property management
- Adverse possession
- Rights of way
We represent clients in disputes arising out of commercial and residential leaseholds, as well as cooperative and condominium litigation, including trials and appeals. At the landlord-tenant dispute level, we have experience in cases involving non-payment, holdover, and breach of lease matters involving a wide variety of claims. For example, we have handled claims such as alleged failure of the landlord to make necessary repairs, constructive eviction claims, illegal subleases, the illusory tenant doctrine, so-called “Yellowstone injunctions” to prevent lease termination, luxury rent decontrol claims, and other matters. At the cooperative and condominium level, we have handled claims involving alleged misrepresentations in offering plans, faulty construction, and statutory claims for alleged abuse by a sponsor. As with our commercial litigation practice, we explore settlement options, counsel our clients in risk avoidance, and attempt to assess for them the potential costs and benefits of proceeding with litigation.
