Purchase, Sale or Refinance Closings

G&G LawPLLC helps clients in the Danbury area and all across Connecticut with real estate related legal services. We help our clients accomplish their goals while limiting their liability and meeting their financial needs. Whether buying, selling, or refinancing your home, a business location, or an investment property or fighting a foreclosure by your lender or a tax authority, you will need the help of a Danbury real estate lawyer.

We represent both buyers and sellers in real estate closing transactions. While the exact steps are different in a sale or purchase of real estate, the services we provide are similar: We assist in negotiating and drafting the sales contract, compile information on mortgages and liens, handle the flow of money through escrow and the transfer of title via deed; all the while making sure our clients interests are protected from legal and financial liability.

If you own or are looking to buy property for a specific use, we can help you figure out if your use is allowed by local zoning regulations. We can also assist in filing special using permits with zoning, including town hall filings and zoning board meetings.

If you are looking to rent out real estate property but need a custom lease drafted, we can help you at a very reasonable cost. After a meeting with the client to discuss needs and goals of the rental arrangement we draft a custom lease that addresses those needs and goals. If things turn sour with your tenant, we help Landlords enforce their property rights through the eviction process.

Being foreclosed on by your bank, mortgage company, or a tax authority? There are a few options that you can choose from to meet your obligations. Being foreclosed on is not enjoyable, but our experienced foreclosure defense attorneys can help you limit the financial impact the foreclosure has on your life.

Make sure all your bases are covered by hiring a real estate attorney at G&G LawPLLC to handle your real estate related legal matters. Have an attorney that is in the Danbury and Greater Danbury community can have many advantages. Contact us today by phone at 203-794-6691.

At G&G LawPLLC we represent individuals, families and businesses in an array of tax-related services. Our tax attorney can help identify or respond to Federal, State and Local tax problems. We can defend, appeal or negotiate your tax burdens.

Tax Liability Defense & Settlement

Whether you already have a notice from a tax authority or are trying to get an issue resolved before official notice, our tax attorney is ready to counsel you through your specific situation. We are experienced in defending or settling all manners of civil and criminal federal, state and local tax cases, whether civil or criminal. We can assist with:

  • Offers in compromise: An offer in compromise is an agreement with the taxing authority, such as the IRS, to pay less than the amount owed. We can help you negotiate an offer in compromise so you can meet your obligations within your ability to pay.
  • IRS tax settlements: If you owe the IRS unpaid taxes, whether due to a mistake or an unfiled tax return, it can be beneficial to offer a settlement with the IRS so you can avoid penalties and investigation by the Criminal Investigations Division (CID).
  • IRS payment plans: It may impossible for you to pay your back taxes all at once. In these situations, we may be able to work out a payment plan with the IRS on your behalf.
  • Tax appeals: If you do not agree with the IRS, DRS or City/Town determination of your tax liability, you may be able to appeal that determination. Our tax attorney can help you file an appeal and work through the appeals process.
  • Innocent spouse: Spouses are jointly and severally liable for the full amount of taxes due. However, there are situations where the IRS will grant full or partial relief for an innocent spouse. If your spouse was responsible for the unpaid or unfiled taxes and you have clean hands, you may be able to claim innocent spouse relief from the IRS.
  • Tax audits: We can help with the organization and preparation that is essential in a tax audit. If you have received a notice of audit or if you are involved in an audit with any tax authority, the attorneys at our firm can advise and guide you through the entire audit process.
  • State Sales & Use Tax: When you collect Sales Tax from your customers, you are holding it in trust for the State of Connecticut; it is the State’s money. Failing to collect or remit Sales Tax can lead to civil liability, penalties, fines and even criminal charges.
  • Payroll taxes: Under the law, payroll taxes are held “in trust” for your employees. If you failed to pay the payroll taxes the IRS can assess a penalty of up to 100 percent of the amount owed, doubling the amount you owe.
  • Independent contractor: If you improperly classify an employee as an independent contractor, you could be held liable for unpaid employment taxes.

Personal Injury

Danbury Auto Accident Attorneys

Seek Compensation for Injury to Body & Damage to Property

Serving Danbury, Bethel, Brookfield, Redding, Newtown, New Milford, New Fairfield, Greenwich, New Canaan, Ridgefield and all of Connecticut.

Click to Call 1-203-794-6691

When you or a loved one is injured in an accident due to the fault of another there are many questions that race through your mind:

  • How will we pay for medical bills?
  • With all the time missed from work, how will we pay our regular bills?
  • Who will repair or replace my vehicle and other personal property that was lost?
  • Who will care for my children?
  • Who will care for me?

The only thing that will put your mind at ease are answers. So what should you do?

The first thing you need to do is seek medical attention for your injuries and any injuries sustained by members of your family. Your health is of primary concern. Follow all doctors orders.

You might consider calling the insurance companies; either your own or the at fault party’s. Before you do this, you need to understand that an insurance adjusters primary goal is not to get you full compensation for your injuries. The goal of an insurance adjuster is to minimize the losses to their employer, the insurance company. Your insurance company will tell you that if the other person is at fault, call their insurance company and start a claim. When you call the at fault party’s insurance company, they will want to put some, if not all, of the blame on you. The insurance company will claim it is necessary to make a recorded statement in order to process your claim. Do Not Do This! They are hoping to get information they can use against you. Even a seemingly innocent question such as “How are you?”, answered in passing as “I’m ok.” can be used in court as a “prior inconsistent statement” when you claim injuries.

What you need to do is contact a personal injury attorney. When you get an attorney to represent you in a personal injury matter, we are ethically bound to do that which is in your best interest. As your personal injury attorney we will fight to get you reimbursed for lost property, medical expenses and lost wages, and compensated for mental and physical suffering, including permanent disability.

our Firm PLLC offers small town law office attention to the personal injury clients. Large firms lure you in with television commercials, flashy offices and big time partners, then pass your case file along to an associate attorney or paralegal. We offer case management that is client centered and attorney driven. We use technology to keep our clients informed throughout the entire personal injury claim process.

Contact us today for free consultation and so we can further explain our automobile accident process to you. You can reach us by phone: Click to Call 1-203-794-6691.

Business Succession

Attorneys for Buying or Selling a Business

Buy, Sell or Transfer Business Interest

Businesses are bought and sold for many reasons. Merger, retirement, moving, children, health, new ideas….the reasons are as diverse as the types of businesses themselves.

Whether you are buying or selling a business one thing is universal: you want to limit your liability. If you are buying the business you want to make sure you are not on the hook for those things that came before you. If you are selling the business, you want to make sure you are not on the hook for things that happen after you are gone.

In either case, you will want the guidance and assistance of an experienced business attorney to help you get through the business succession process.

Here are just some of the tasks we perform for our business succession clients:

Negotiate and Draft Asset Purchase Agreement and Ancillary Agreements

Perform Due Diligence on Both Business Entities

Issue Attorney Opinion Letters

Manage Purchase Funds Through Escrow

Transfer Physical Assets

Transfer Intellectual property

Fix Problems That Come Up

Mortgage Refinance

Mortgage Refinance Attorneys

Residential or Commercial Real Estate

The basic principle of a refinance is simple: you are taking out a new mortgage to pay off your old one. Determining your eligibility for refinancing is similar to the approval process that you went through with your current mortgage. The lender will consider your income and assets, credit score, other debts, the current value of the property, and the amount you want (or need) to borrow. The lender can be the same as your current mortgage or a different one. Before you refinance, you need to make sure it makes sense for your situation. Here are some reasons to refinance your mortgage:

  • If your credit score has improved, you may be able to get a loan at a lower interest rate.
  • Interest rates are lower over-all
  • Lower your payment by adding years to repayment term or increasing equity
  • Reduce or eliminate Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)
  • Shorten loan length
  • Convert adjustable rate loan to fixed rate loan
  • Cash out equity

Whatever your reason, you will want an attorney with the knowledge and experience necessary to ensure your Mortgage Refinance transaction goes smoothly.

At G&G LawPLLC counsel our clients through the refinance process by reviewing their reasons and underlying loans and making sure they are getting what has been promised. We compile and draft any necessary documentation for the refinance lender, work with the lender to compile the Closing Disclosure figures, execute all mortgage documentation with the client, record all mortgages and releases, disburse al funds under the Closing Disclosure, and return all the necessary signed documents to the bank within the proper timeframe.

Buying a Home

Real Estate Purchase Attorney

Real Estate Closings in Danbury, Brookfield, Bethel, Redding, Newtown, Ridgefield, New Milford, New Fairfield 

Representing Buyers in the Purchase of a Home

As “Buyer’s Attorney” in real estate closings we act as the Settlement Agent. That means we are responsible for the entire process from contract review and signing to settling the funds and recording the deed (and mortgage).

Throughout the process we make sure:

  • the condition of the property is safe for living or working by requiring all necessary inspections and disclosures from the Seller or their agent.
  • We make sure the title is clear and marketable, free of encumbrances such as mortgages or liens, and if it is not, that our client is fully informed as to their existence and meaning.
  • We negotiate the contract of sale with the Seller’s Attorney to make sure the contingencies our client requires are included and that our client is receiving the property as promised, and as required by law.
  • We review the mortgage company’s commitment letter and advise our clients accordingly.
  • We conduct or review the title search, depending on the needs of our clients. We help our clients purchase title insurance to protect their real estate purchase from undiscoverable issues created by previous owners and future issues such as fraud.
  • We coordinate all of the cash flow through our IOLTA trust account, and help pay off outstanding mortgages on other property if our client requests us to do so.
  • We record all necessary documents with the Town Hall where the property is located and deliver bank documents to lenders.

We offer flat fee engagements for buyers of any kind of real property; whether a home, a condo, a lot of land, a farm, a commercial building, and apartment building, you name it. Contact us today for a free flat fee quote on your real estate purchase.

Selling a Home

Real Estate Sale Attorney

Real Estate Closings in Danbury, Brookfield, Bethel, Redding, Newtown, Ridgefield, New Milford, New Fairfield 

Representing Sellers of a Home

As “Seller’s Attorney” in real estate closings, we:

  • review the Contract Information Sheet sent over by the realtors and discuss any concerns with our clients;
  • prepare the contract for sale including all the necessary terms such as identification of the parties and their agents, legal description of the property, price of sale, and any representations or disclosures about the property our client must make, as required by law.
  • We then negotiate the contract terms with the Buyer’s Attorney, who will want to introduce additional terms to protect their client.
  • We resolve any title or permit issues that come up during the title search or municipal records search;
  • We obtain payoff letters for any active mortgages so that they may be paid off from the sale proceeds and the Buyer can have clear title.
  • We obtain and record all mortgage releases with the Town Hall where the property is located.

Getting an attorney involved in the early stages of a Sale is very important. Almost immediately, realtors and other service providers will want you to sign contracts with them. We can assist in reviewing and negotiating these agreements as well. 

We offer flat fee engagements on Sales of any kind of property so our clients can budget for our services; plus all fees are paid at closing from the proceeds with nothing due up front. Contact us for a free quote on your real estate sale closing.
