Diserio Martin O'Connor & Castiglioni LLP

Residential Purchases and Sales

Our residential real estate lawyers represent clients in the purchase and sale of residential real estate and in mortgage closings and refinances. Our attorneys have the experience and sophistication to handle not only conventional purchase and sale transactions but also more complex transactions such as the acquisition of waterfront property or sale of new construction, sale-leasebacks and purchases and sales of foreclosed or financially-distressed property. We can also guide clients through the maze of environmental problems, such as asbestos, lead paint, radon and abandoned or leaking underground fuel oil tanks, which arise during the course of many of these transactions.

We partner with our Trusts & Estates Department to find the most effective way to title, acquire and convey real estate assets to minimize federal and state income and capital gain taxes and avoid the payment of conveyance taxes.
