Hudson Valley Real Estate Law Experts
Lonergan & Lonergan (“L&L”) is a full-service residential real estate law firm in uptown Kingston, New York. Its partners, brothers James and Michael Lonergan, have lived and practiced in the upper Hudson Valley since 1988. In that time they have forged solid working relationships with other attorneys, brokers, banks and credit unions, home inspectors, appraisers, title companies and land surveyors – all of whose cooperation is vital to a successful transaction.
The firm maintains its office in Kingston (Ulster County), but its practice extends north to Greene and Columbia Counties, west to Sullivan and Delaware Counties, east to Dutchess County and south to Orange and Putnam Counties.
In addition to representing sellers and purchasers of residential real property, L&L also represents property owners seeking legalization of subdivisions, lot line adjustments, easements, rights of way and road maintenance agreements.
On the financing side of real estate transactions, L&L represents banks and credit unions financing real property purchases. The firm is fully conversant and compliant with the new TILA/RESPA integrated disclosure rules and forms. Likewise, it represents sellers financing real property sales with private purchase money mortgages.
Years of experience give L&L a distinct advantage over other firms in that its partners have so often “been there, seen that,” they anticipate and solve problems before those problems have a chance to unravel a deal.
Decades of experience also task the Lonergan brothers with a responsibility to remember that what comes as second nature to them is not always so for clients new to the process, so they strive to make every stage of that process as understandable as possible. We include in “FAQ” outlines of a real estate transaction from the perspectives of a seller and a purchaser; in “Sample Forms” we collect documents common to a typical real estate deal; and in our Blog we post for the benefit of clients (and fellow members of the bar) recent developments in real property law and practice.
Lonergan & Lonergan is committed to excellence in every aspect of its practice. We are decidedly old school in adhering to the belief the practice of law is a profession and in treating the matters our clients entrust to us in that spirit. We encourage you to “kick the tires” of other real estate firms in the area, confident you will conclude the experience, integrity and professionalism of Lonergan & Lonergan has no equal.
We look forward to representing you.
