Residential Sales and Purchases
When embarking upon what is for many the single most important transaction of their lives, clients need to know that they are working with a competent attorney who is fully versed in the real estate laws and regulations of their region. Tully Rinckey PLLC’s Syracuse, N.Y. real estate law attorneys will perform all necessary steps to ensure a successful closing, with your interests protected. We will perform contract review and negotiations, offering advice and guidance throughout. Even in the best transactions, issues arise such as title disputes, inspection problems, or failure to disclose a material defect. Tully Rinckey PLLC’s attorneys will re-negotiate on your behalf, always with your best interests uppermost in our minds.
Commercial Purchases and Sales
Our team of real estate attorneys in Syracuse, N.Y. has a wealth of experience in assisting buyers and sellers in commercial transactions, including corporate real estate properties, large commercial land packages and urban and suburban complexes.

That makes Tully Rinckey PLLC an indispensable part of your team, and your trusted advisor.
City planners and construction developers are increasingly turning to mixed-use buildings in an effort to provide consumers and business owners with optimal environments for business and retail locations, as well as residential living. These properties have their own set of unique rules and requirements and are governed by the zoning and municipal regulations of the individual municipalities and counties. Because our attorneys live and work in Central New York, we are conversant in those rules and regulations and we will assist you in the development process, from initial planning and zoning board approvals through the final closing.
As with any complex transaction, real estate disputes can and do arise and you need to be prepared. Attorneys in our Syracuse, N.Y. office are experienced litigators, representing tenants, landlords, dominant or subservient tenants embroiled in easement disputes, or cases of adverse possession and title encumbrances. We will aggressively represent your interests and work to negotiate an acceptable settlement or pursue litigation to defend your rights.
Home Selling Process
You’ve decided to sell your home. Maybe you’re finally making the move to a warmer climate. Or, perhaps you need to relocate for business purposes. Whatever the reason, you’re going to need the services of an experienced real estate attorney. We will advise you throughout the process, from ensuring that you are dealing with qualified buyers, through contract review and negotiation, to title searches, all the way to the closing table.
Home Buying Process
Syracuse was recently ranked 29th in the nation for affordable homes, while Utica came in at 19th nationwide. Although lending markets seem to be easing, it is still crucial that you, as the buyer, have the representation of a qualified real estate attorney to guide you through the purchasing process. We will review your purchase offer, the Property Condition Disclosure Statement, any structural inspection, any special contingencies included in the agreement that may be detrimental to you, and we will help you step by step through the entire closing process, making sure that you understand what you are signing and assist you to take advantage of any tax credits or reductions that may be available to you.
