Eastern Long Island, and the Hamptons in particular, boasts some of the most valuable residential real estate of any non-urban areas in the United States. The area’s significant growth in real estate values over the past few decades have resulted in a concentration of contested real estate transactions.
EHA has been at the center of many of these disputes, representing sellers and purchasers fighting over down payments, sellers seeking to terminate contracts, purchasers seeking to enforce contracts through “specific performance,” and both sides contesting the enforceability of option agreements and rights of first refusal.
Because of our experience litigating these types of contract disputes, we often consult with other transactional attorneys when their contracts become contentious, since the outcome of any potential litigation can often depend on the precise way in which the a controversy or “time of the essence” closing was handled.
EHA also represents landlords and tenants in both long- and short-term lease disputes, lenders and borrowers in foreclosure actions, and builders and owners in construction contract disputes.
