Local Hudson Valley Lawyers Can Help Avoid the Pitfalls of a Weekend Retreat!

I just noticed this recent post in the NYTimes about more modest weekend homes and retreats in the Hudson Valley.

When purchasing a second home we recommend hiring a local real estate attorney to give you the “lay of the land,” to direct you as to issues that arise in “upstate” real estate transactions, and to help you avoid the pitfalls. In the past three years, as second home prices have fallen in the region, distressed real estate has become a haven for problems caused by neglect, economic desperation and ignorance. Leaking oil tanks, failed septics, contaminated water, even leaky roofs have caused problems.
