Buying a home is a big investment. It is important that you understand the legal issues involved in residential real estate transactions, including disclosures, purchase contracts, potential title defects, zoning issues, and taxes. Although the steps involved in buying a home are similar regardless of where you live, New York’s real estate laws and practices are unique in some respects—particularly if you are looking to buy a co-op or condo.
