The Real Estate Practice is an integral part of the Firm. We represent lenders, borrowers, owners, investors, developers, contractors and title companies in planning, financing, insuring, selling, purchasing, zoning and developing a broad range of real estate projects.
The real estate lawyers of Macey Wilensky have handled matters involving acquisitions, conduit lending, mezzanine financing, easements, adverse possession, prescriptive use, title insurance disputes, breach of contract, fraud and leasehold disputes. Other matters have included commercial and residential landlord and tenant disputes, bankruptcy and foreclosure.
Our Real Estate Default Practice is focused on representing lenders through the process of obtaining and protecting real property in default. With our vast experience in the areas of both collections and real estate law, we are able to provide comprehensive legal services to lenders in need of default servicing attorneys. The following are among the services we provide to our clients, based on our extensive experience in the local market:
Foreclosure services: We can guide lenders through the foreclosure process from start to finish and help them respond effectively to any challenges that may arise, including bankruptcy filings, liens on property, title issues and debtor litigation.
Post-foreclosure evictions: After foreclosure, the eviction of former owners, tenants and others can be complicated. Our attorneys are familiar with the process, including the implications of new state and federal legislation.
Lenders’ litigation counsel: Sometimes, enforcing your rights through foreclosure can expose you to potentially expensive litigation on the part of borrowers or tenants. Our experienced lawyers can help respond.
Real estate owned (REO): Banks and lenders are not generally involved in the property management business, but when loans go into default and lenders recover properties through foreclosure sales, those properties must be managed before they can be resold.
The Firm’s Real Estate Group is designed to provide a full range of real estate services to counsel clients in both simple and complex legal markets.
