For many years, Kishner Miller Himes has assisted purchasers and investors from outside the United States in acquiring a piece of the “Big Apple.” New York real estate, as a home, business locale or an investment, has long been attractive to persons and businesses from abroad. That attraction is all the more so today.
From deep experience, we recognize how different the acquisition of property interests in New York real estate can be to those from another country. Our attorneys diligently explain the process to assure that a foreign client is comfortable every step of the way. As a small firm, each of our lawyers, including our partners, is always “hands on” in accomplishing the deal. We have the experience and knowledge to advise on the best structure for a transaction (such as creating a limited liability corporation or other entity), the potential tax consequences (while consulting with appropriate tax experts as appropriate) and the possibly unique financing issues an international buyer or investor faces. We also assist clients after acquiring property, such as handling legal aspects of property management, leasing and the like. For many years, KMH has helped clients from all over the world participate in the New York real estate world.
