With over 25 years of experience in working with various New York City co-op boards and condominium associations, our attorneys at The Law Offices of George Russo & Associates are prepared to assist with your real estate transaction through effective, results-oriented representation.

Offering Comprehensive Advice And Counsel

We represent individuals, families, co-op boards and condominium associations in matters related to the sale and purchase of co-ops or condos. In advising whether a transaction is in your best interests, we assist with the following:

  • Advising on mortgage lenders
  • Recommending home inspectors to inspect the physical and legal condition of the property
  • Completing a title search and examination
  • Reviewing the history of sales of the property
  • Evaluating the report of the home inspector
  • Assessing if the certificate of occupancy is compliant

Based on these items and any others that may be applicable to the property, our attorneys will make a recommendation on whether the sale or purchase is wise to move forward with.
