From the ratification of the contract to the final closing, Attorney Jay Waldhauser guides each of his clients in every step of their real estate transactions. Through each phase of the transaction, he knowledgeably directs them through complications that sometimes arise and require contract renegotiation, adjusted timetables, extended closings, or legal action for breach of contract.
Residential Real Estate
Buyers or sellers of residential property find Jay to be a reliable advocate who understands both the legal code pertaining to real estate transactions, and the market dynamics that directly affect the clients he represents. Jay has guided first-time buyers and sellers through the maze of deadlines and paperwork that is inherent in real estate transactions, taking care to explain confusing terminology and to answer questions that arise. Repeat home buyers or sellers—whether they are upgrading, downsizing, or purchasing a second home —find Jay’s competent and efficient representation and guidance invaluable.
Commercial Real Estate
Jay also represents clients who are purchasing or selling commercial business property. He skillfully negotiates the intricacies of commercial transactions and skill to close the deal to his client’s best advantage. Jay stays abreast of the fluid regulatory environment concerning landlords and tenants—and their rights and responsibilities to each other—in order to protect his clients’ interests.
Investment Real Estate
For over a decade, investors in residential or commercial real estate have trusted Jay to handle their transactions; in fact, Jay has represented clients with a broad range of investment strategies. Real estate developers with vast capital assets have trusted him to represent their interests, as have lenders who have financed such developments. Jay has worked with investors whose business plan includes purchasing and holding their property for income generation as well as with clients who rehab properties to flip them. Jay’s broad client base has also included investors in niche markets such as lease options, foreclosures, or revitalized communities. His extensive experience with a diverse client base has given Jay first-hand knowledge of a broad range of investment opportunities.
Jay’s primary market is greater New York City—particularly the boroughs of Queens and the Bronx—as well as Kings, Nassau, Richmond, and Suffolk. However, his client base now spans beyond New York State and extends into Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
