In real estate, moving fast while remaining detail-oriented is key. Whether we are going to contract, closing, defending an eviction, seeking payment from a delinquent tenant or staying an auction on a foreclosure, we work fast while still performing meticulous, high-quality work. Your matter will always be given top priority in our office. We handle:

  • Closings (representing individuals, businesses, not-for-profit and benevolent organizations in purchases and sales)
  • Evictions (landlords and tenants)
  • Lease drafting (residential and commercial)
  • Real estate litigation
  • Foreclosure Defense

House Closings/ House Sales:

When buying or selling real estate, it is difficult to overestimate the value of a good attorney as not only a buffer between you and your buyer or seller, but in drafting a clear, protective, and unambiguous contract that will prevent future disputes and litigation. As a litigator, Ms. Nevias always drafts contracts with an eye toward preventing disputes, and in the rare times they cannot be prevented, ensuring a result in your favor. Unlike many real estate attorneys who take a hands-off approach, she will negotiate your contract, advocate for you in every aspect of your transaction, and personally represent you at the closing. And in the rare event that a transaction turns litigious, as a litigator, she can represent you in any court proceeding.

Co-ops and Condominiums:

With her strong background in co-op and condominium law, Ms. Nevias will make the purchase or sale of your co-op or and condominium as close to stress-free as possible. She will review offering plans, board minutes and amendments, be your liaison with the managing agent, and guide and speed you through the paperwork-heavy process of board approval and closing.

Landlord Tenant Litigation:

Whether you are a landlord seeking a quick eviction or a tenant who needs time to work out a difficult situation, an experienced landlord-tenant lawyer is crucial to your success. Landlord tenant litigation is an extremely detail-oriented specialty litigation that should not be handled by attorneys who practice only in Supreme Court. The New York Real Property and Procedures Laws are designed to allow fast eviction in certain circumstances but protect tenants from hasty eviction. Small mistakes may result in a petition being dismissed. Whether you are a landlord or tenant, you need a detail-oriented, experienced attorney to get the job done.

With over 20 years of experience representing landlords and tenants in New York City civil courts and Long Island District Courts, you will be well represented by Lori Nevias.
