Port Jefferson, Long Island Real Estate Attorney


Of all of the services that the Law Office of Richard J. Kaufman offers, probably none is more satisfying to all concerned than our Suffolk County real estate law services, especially when the transaction is the purchase or sale of a home. Nothing can be more fraught with confusion or concern than a house closing involving numerous professionals such as real estate brokers, mortgage brokers, bank underwriters, title closers, and attorneys for the seller, purchaser and the bank (to name a few), together with the transfer of hundreds of thousands of dollars. The role of your attorney should be to make the process understandable and reduce the tension and risk that naturally surrounds such a process, especially where you are both buying and selling at the same time.

At the Law Office of Richard J. Kaufman, we do not look at your real estate purchase or sale as simply a legal matter. We recognize our clients’ concerns and try to make the process as simple and understandable as possible by offering these services:

  • SAME DAY CONTRACTS - as a seller’s attorney we generally will have contracts prepared and to the purchaser’s attorney within hours; as purchaser’s attorney, we are available for immediate signing with weekend and evening appointments available.

  • IMMEDIATE CALL RESPONSE - we recognize that the success of a real estate transaction often depends upon prompt communication amongst the various people involved and we have staff and after-hours service to respond quickly.

  • FULL COORDINATION WITH ALL OTHER PROFESSIONALS - we recognize that the purchase or sale of real estate is a team effort and we believe we have established a fine reputation in the field with our colleagues and other professionals, which oftentimes translates into resolving issues before they arise.

  • EXPERIENCE - as a practicing attorney for 35 years in real estate and related fields, issues are oftentimes anticipated and avoided with solid (and sometimes creative) solutions.

  • REASONABLE FEES - once the scope of the transaction is understood by answering a few simple questions, in most instances we are able to quote you a reasonable flat fee competitive with our colleagues.

Whether it is myself or my staff assigned exclusively to a real estate matter, there is always someone available to answer your questions or concerns promptly. Even after hours, we are available by telephone and for evening appointments. If you are a seller, the initial draft of your contract will be forwarded to the purchaser’s attorney within hours of receiving the basic information from you or the broker. If you are the purchaser, we try to give you a realistic evaluation of the actual costs involved and alternative strategies so you do not risk your down payment if a problem arises.

Besides helping to buy and sell your home, our Long Island real estate law firm offers a wide range of other real estate services, including commercial real estate, IRS 1031 tax-free exchanges, landlord and tenant matters, title issues and bank closings. Because of the experience built over a 34-year career, we not only handle the transactional aspects of real estate, but in the event that litigation is the route to resolve a conflict, you can rely on our office to develop a sound and efficient strategy for success in the courtroom. Our results reflect such a high success rate in both prosecuting and defending cases that oftentimes these matters have been referred to our office by other real estate attorneys or by clients whose attorneys do not handle litigation. Frequently, understanding if and when going to court is necessary gives us the ability to help our client avoid the costly, anxiety-provoking and time-consuming process.
