Staten Island Real Estate Lawyer Educates Clients

Providing vital information for successful property transactions

A property transaction in New York or New Jersey requires a significant investment. Business owners and prospective homebuyers cannot afford to be mistaken about any of the terms of their real estate agreement. Yet, most purchasers or lessees have only a passing knowledge of real estate law and have a difficult time deciphering the legalese in real estate contracts. That’s why, since 1997, William J. Newstad, Esq., Attorney and Counselor has made it our mission to educate our clients about the terms and conditions of transactional documents, as well as the best practices in the real estate business. We want our clients to be fully informed, so they can make the best decisions for their businesses or their families.

Full-service attorney for New York and New Jersey real estate

We take real estate very seriously. William J. Newstad, Esq., Attorney and Counselor is an affiliate member of the Staten Island Board of Realtors, and is also licensed to practice real estate law in New Jersey.

  • Residential real estate — We protect the interests of buyers and sellers in single-home transactions and residential developments.
  • Commercial real estate — While “location, location, location” are still the three most important aspects of any business property, other terms and conditions can also lead to a business’ success or failure.
  • Commercial leases — Often, it makes more sense to rent than to own commercial property. We help our clients get the best terms for their businesses.
  • Representation of Banks — We capably manage closings on all types of property.

Real estate services to meet the full range of your needs

As your real estate attorney, we strive to ensure a smooth transaction, which routinely involves contract negotiation, and due diligence to expose and rectify any defects in title. We recommend buyers purchase title insurance to protect against any deficiencies that may later come to light. After the transaction, we are available to negotiate or litigate any disputes that arise concerning terms of the buying or selling agreement.
