Ianniello Anderson, P.C. Real Estate Attorneys throughout New York
Serving Albany, Troy, Saratoga Springs & Clifton Park
Since 1971, the law firm of Ianniello Anderson, P.C. has been working with clients on a wide range of real estate transactions in the greater Albany, Troy, Saratoga Springs, Glens Falls and Clifton Park areas.
The attorneys at Ianniello Anderson, P.C. represent buyers and sellers in a wide range of residential transactions including purchase or sale of a house. Residential real estate transactions may be routine to a team as experienced as ours, but we know they are anything but ordinary for our clients, and we appreciate the trust that has been placed in us.
It is important to hire an attorney when you are buying or selling a home so that you can get a more complete understanding of what you are getting yourself into. Most realtors do a fantastic job listing properties for sellers and finding properties for buyers, but beyond that point, they are not as big of an asset to you as you might expect. Unless they also happen to be an attorney, realtors are not licensed to practice law, so they are not able to explain the pros and cons of different contract terms to you. Although most contracts are form contracts, it matters greatly what terms are slipped into the blanks or riders. Realtors are also not able to give you an idea of the liability risks you are facing.
Although the scope of their services is limited, realtors are always well compensated (most often deservingly so). Because realtor commissions can add up, we are actually seeing a lot of buyers and sellers working without a real estate agent. We think both parties to a real estate transaction should always consult with an attorney, but it becomes especially critical to do so in for sale by owner (FSBO) situations. Although the necessary forms are available online, and it is possible to do-it-yourself, each home has enough quirks that consulting with an attorney is not only valuable but also necessary. As attorneys it is our job to make sure that as our client you are aware of the quirks and that you are negotiating with them in mind.
Our firm puts all of our clients on a pedestal, but we go out of our way to make first time buyers and sellers feel comfortable with the real estate process. We explain each step of the process in detail, taking time to translate legalese into English and explain what each and every acronym means. We also stress that we are available 24/7 to answer any and all questions. There really is no silly question when you are dealing with what is one of the largest decisions and biggest investments of your life.

Virtually any lawyer can muddle their way through a residential real estate transaction, but it takes real expertise to make a commercial transaction go off without a hitch. Commercial real estate law is much more complex than other areas of property law. We regularly deal with unique financing structures, zoning regulations, construction issues, and leasing schemes that would baffle less experienced attorneys.
Financing- Most commercial real estate deals are not done via traditional single-lender mortgage loans. Over the years we have worked with a large number of diverse clients, helping them secure syndicated mortgage loans, commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) loans, bond-type financing, credit tenant financing, conduit financing, mezzanine loans and other unique financing.
Zoning and Land Use- We regularly advise clients on a wide variety of land use, zoning, permitting and governmental affairs matters. We are local, so we know what will work and what won't work in different municipalities, and we don't waste our clients' time and money on schemes that are destined to fail. When necessary, we also aggressively litigate land use matters.
Construction and Development- Our team has drafted construction-related documents for stand-alone projects and multi-stage, multi-location ventures. We are always up for the challenge of working with our client's entire team - from architects and engineers, to design consultants, construction managers, general contractors, and project managers - to make sure the legal aspects of a project are not holding it back.
Leasing and Selling- Our lawyers are business-minded, so we know that getting money back out of a property is the key to success in the commercial real estate business. We move quickly but cautiously when our clients call on us to make a deal happen.
We are a 100% client-focused, deal-oriented firm. Our number one goal is always taking our client's vision and making it a reality. When we are doing work on behalf of a client we consider ourselves a member of their team. We are prepared to fully integrate our work with that of the bank, the accountant, the contractors, whoever we need to, in order to get the job done efficiently and cost-effectively.
One measure of our success is the number of clients that have worked with us for years, and through multiple projects. Many of them feel more like business partners than clients because we have worked with them so frequently and truly have their interests at heart. This is the type of relationship we strive for with each and every one of our clients.

Interest rates have remained at historic lows following the 2008 financial crisis, so now is a great time for borrowers to refinance home mortgage loans that are locked in at significantly higher rates. At Ianniello Anderson, P.C. our team of real estate attorneys regularly reviews refinancing documents and helps clients in the eastern upstate New York region overcome all the obstacles necessary to secure their lower-rate loans.
While some individuals attempt to go through the refinancing process without legal assistance, this is not recommended. There will be a lawyer, or lawyers, involved in the process even if the borrower does not hire one of his or her own. The lender will have at least one lawyer involved in the refinancing. It is important to note that the lender's lawyer does not represent the interests of the borrower, and is not the borrower's lawyer, even if the borrower is paying the lender's lawyer's legal fees. If the borrower wants legal representation, the borrower needs to hire his own separate attorney.
There are a couple of reasons a borrower might want to hire his own attorney. First, having an attorney at your side to answer your questions from a non-biased perspective can give you peace of mind. Home loans are the biggest financial undertaking most people make during their lifetime. An attorney can help to ensure that you're making the right choices as the process moves along.
Secondly, some refinancings are not as straightforward as others. Sometimes when the bank is doing all the pre-checking required to proceed with the refinancing it discovers that there are other “open” or outstanding mortgages or liens on the property, and it refuses to move forward until all the open items are “closed” or paid off. This can happen even in refinancings where the open lien on the property was paid off years and years ago.
It is a real headache to track down all the old mortgages and liens, get documentation proving they have been satisfied, and get the county clerk to modify the property records to show that the property's title is clear. So, many borrowers in this situation hire an attorney to do the legwork for them.
