Real Estate & Land Use

Rogers & Tartaro, LLP represents buyers and sellers of real estate in New York and Connecticut, from basic real estate transactions to complex land use and zoning issues.

Connecticut and New York Real Estate and Land Use Lawyers

When you sell or buy property, you enter into legally-binding contracts. In Connecticut and New York, all parties to a real estate transaction are usually represented by an attorney. You are not obligated to use the attorney that the lender offers. You are better protected if you have an experienced real estate attorney who will advocate for you and help you understand the requirements of the contract, and how they affect your rights.

Frequently, in real estate transactions, misunderstandings over aspects of the contract arise. Rogers & Tartaro, LLP will negotiate a favorable settlement if any disputes occur during the real estate transaction. Rogers & Tartaro, LLP will keep track of mortgage issues, inspections and financial issues, making sure that your rights are protected and your obligations are fulfilled. If title problems are found, Rogers & Tartaro, LLP can help find a way to resolve them prior to the purchase or sale.

We have the knowledge and expertise necessary to ensure that your settlement goes smoothly with no surprises. We have a highly qualified and dedicated staff that makes sure each step of the process proceeds without a hitch. When you retain our firm you not only get the technical competence you require, you also get a firm with extensive experience in dealing with the procedural and emotional elements of real estate transactions.

Real Estate Services

Some of our real estate services include:

  • Transactions: We represent clients at residential and commercial closings, and mortgage refinancing.
  • Litigation: We handle real estate property disputes that may arise in the course of probate and estate administration, or other controversies over ownership and property rights. We prosecute and defend adverse possession claims (similar to squatter's rights) which arise from property boundary disputes.
  • Foreclosures: We prosecute and defend foreclosure actions. We negotiate with lenders on mortgage defaults on behalf of our clients.
  • Other Real Estate Matters: We prepare mortgages and secure property. We handle transfers of ownership and satisfactions of mortgages, liens and other encumbrances.

Land Use

All property is subject to local, state and federal land use laws. Whether you are a commercial developer or are building your dream house, you need someone who can guide you through the process of land use and zoning laws. Our firm will advocate for your rights and help you identify your options. Rogers & Tartaro, LLP assists clients with obtaining variances, special use permits and obtaining a Certificate of Occupancy after completion of construction.

  • Boundary disputes
