Real Estate Transactions and Real Estate Litigation

New York City Residential and Commercial Real Estate Lawyer

The Law Office of Steven Riker assists owners and developers to acquire, lease, finance and sell commercial and investment properties. We also assist individuals to purchase, finance, and sell single-family houses, co-ops, and condominiums. When called upon, we also aggressively and effectively represent the interests of owners, landlords, tenants, and real estate brokers in litigated contract, lease, and brokerage disputes.

Real Estate Sales and Leasing Transactions

At the Law Office of Steven Riker, we regularly represent sellers, purchasers, lenders, and title companies at co-op, condominium, and house closings, and in the preparation and negotiation of contracts of sale, occupancy agreements, escrow agreements, and instruments of conveyance. We also regularly represent owners, developers, landlords and tenants in commercial real estate acquisitions, leasing transactions, related financing transactions, construction agreements, and 1031 tax-deferred exchanges. We review offering plans, by-laws, and financial statements, and perform due diligence on all such transactions. Closings and lease negotiations handled by the firm often involve multimillion-dollar transactions, and have reached as much as $30,000,000.00 in value. Thus, whether you are looking to buy, sell, or lease your commercial or residential property, we can help you.

Real Estate and Landlord-Tenant Litigation

Whether you own or lease your property, your ability to manage your business can be significantly disrupted when litigation ensues. The firm has successfully handled numerous real estate litigation matters, including landlord-tenant proceedings, breach of contract actions, quiet title proceedings, mechanic’s liens, partition and sale actions, and brokerage disputes. We regularly appear in the New York City Civil Court, where we handle residential and commercial non-payment and holdover proceedings. We also regularly appear in New York State Supreme Court, where we handle emergency requests for “Yellowstone” injunctions, declaratory relief, and other forms of equitable relief. In short, we have represented landlords and tenants, and owners and developers, of all sizes, in summary and plenary proceedings throughout the five boroughs of New York, and welcome the opportunity to assist you in favorably resolving your dispute, in the most efficient manner possible, whether by motion, trial, or settlement.
