Northern New Jersey Real Estate Lawyer Helps Clients Resolve Property Matters

Highly responsive Bergen County attorney assists buyers and sellers of commercial and residential real estate

Real estate transactions that do not go as planned can result in financial loss and overwhelming stress, especially in New Jersey, where prices are among the highest in the country. That’s why it’s important to be represented by an established, local real estate attorney who combines extensive legal knowledge and seasoned property skills to provide you with the personal attention you deserve. At Robert A. Silber, P.C., in Englewood, I have guided Northern New Jersey clients through residential and commercial real estate transactions and litigation since 1996. I am committed to achieving successful results while providing you with the personal attention you deserve. Whether you’re selling your home, investing in commercial property or involved in a tenant dispute, I protect your property rights in a compassionate manner.

Established attorney advocates for the rights of buyers and sellers

Selling property in New Jersey is never easy, especially when there are last-minute discoveries of environmental or structural issues — such as an underground oil-tank leak or termite damage — that could jeopardize the closing. And while you are not required by law in the Garden State to hire an attorney for real estate transactions, having an experienced legal advocate will maximize your chances of completing the sale with a favorable outcome. As an established New Jersey real estate attorney, I understand state and municipal laws and can draw on that knowledge to represent your interests. To relieve the stress and uncertainty of buying or selling property, I provide effective strategies regarding:

  • Real estate contracts — Real estate agents and brokers can help you put your house on the market and find the home of your dreams, but they can’t draft or evaluate contracts of sale or counsel you about your rights to revise or back out of an agreement. I can perform a thorough examination of your situation and careful contract review to ensure your interests are protected.
  • Attorney review clause — New Jersey residential real estate agents must include an attorney review clause in every sales contract. This gives the buyer and seller three business days from the date the contract is signed to consult with an attorney. Waiting to seek legal counsel until then could result in a financial catastrophe. I will carefully review your contract before you sign it to ensure you’re not heading for a last-minute surprise.
  • Liens and title searches — In New Jersey, property must be clear of liens or judgments before transferring ownership, and all buyers seeking a mortgage must have title insurance that protects the lender. Title problems can delay closings or completely derail a sale, so when ownership issues arise, I ensure each relevant concern is brought to the attention of all parties involved, including the buyer, seller, agents, and lenders.

With so much at stake for sellers and buyers, it’s important to be represented by an experienced attorney during a real estate transaction. I offer a free initial consultation so you can understand your rights and move confidently toward a successful closing.

Accomplished lawyer protects real property interests in landlord-tenant disputes

Rental disputes between landlords and tenants can become bitter and protracted. I represent both parties in such disputes and work diligently to establish arrangements that protect their rights while mitigating income loss. When negotiation isn’t possible, I deliver a strong argument in court for a result in favor of your interests. I protect tenants’ rights as regulated by state law and signed leases, and assist landlords in protecting their property rights, which may include initiating eviction actions and terminating leases. But whenever possible, I develop workable strategies that aim to resolve issues quickly and completely to avert future conflicts between owners and renters.
