The Ellis Law Firm for Your Real Estate Transaction

From conveyances to refinances, real estate is a complex area of law that should be entered into with the utmost care. Often it is the largest purchase a person can make where hundreds of thousands of dollars (or more)  change hands.  There are very specific contractual conditions that need to be adhered to when property is transferred. Those providing the funds (lenders) have their own sets of rules to consider in addition to the sales contract. Retaining a trained and seasoned attorney to help navigate these intricate undertakings is not only wise, but essential. The Ellis Law Firm provides experienced counsel and representation in all aspects of real estate law.

Residential Sales and Financing

When a client is ready to purchase a home, or refinance with a lender, we are there to protect his or her interests. From reviewing the sales contract to attending a closing, our attorneys take special care to protect your interests and minimize any potential exposure. Not only do we ensure your rights will be protected, we also expedite the collection and review of documents necessary to closing on time. This includes meeting conditions for free and clear title; making sure all inspections are performed and defects remedied; and negotiating the payment of outstanding  liens.

Commercial Property Transactions

New Jersey and New York are flourishing with commercial property. Landlords, developers, banks and finance companies are challenged by many regulations and statutes when selling, purchasing and leasing real property.
