Our largest practice area is residential real estate. Our concentration in this area of law provides our clients with effective and knowledgeable representation in an area of law within which many attorneys only occasionally practice. We represent buyers, sellers, builders, developers, lending institutions, title companies and every other party to a transaction.
A home is often one’s most expensive and important asset. For this reason, our clients retain our firm to provide the legal expertise that only an attorney specialized in this area can provide.
In representing the purchasers of real estate, we are often asked to evaluate whether a property is over-taxed by the municipality. When a property is over-valued by a municipality, we represent the taxpayer in appealing the municipal assessment. We have successfully reduced taxes on 98% of the tax appeals we have filed, often times without the need for a hearing in front of the county tax board.
In the course of representing both residential and commercial landlords, Duberman Associates is often relied upon to resolve disputes with tenants. We regularly appear in and have successfully tried landlord/tenant cases in landlord/tenant court. Our firm also represents tenants in disputes with a landlord including security deposit issues and self-help provisions in a lease. It is often most effective when we represent a client from lease negotiation so that the lease can best reflect the client’s concerns.
Duberman Associates is a real estate law firm. Unlike many law firms that handle numerous different types of legal matters, our firm prides itself on concentrating in the area of residential and commercial real estate. The firm is committed to providing affordable legal services while maintaining high standards of excellence. We provide our clients with the transactional legal services they require in connection with their real estate needs in both commercial real property and residential real property. We provide the kind of hands on involvement which is necessary to successfully represent the clients in the acquisition, development, leasing, and sales of various properties. These properties include shopping centers, warehouses, industrial property, office buildings, condominiums, multi-family residential projects, and of course, single family homes.
