Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. Speeds Along Probate Process so Client Could Finally Move Into Her Dream Home
In August 2014, Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. was retained by a client who had entered into a contract of sale for her dream town home in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene landmark district. Almost a year had passed since signing the contract and still no closing date had been set, as the town home was subject to probate and the seller was unable to secure the necessary documentation from the Surrogate’s Court to proceed with the sale as the executor of her mother’s estate. At this point, Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.’s client was extremely anxious that the deal was going to fall through and that she would have to completely restart the entire house hunting process.
Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. jumped into action to determine what needed to be done to speed up the probate process. After countless trips to the Surrogate’s Court, phone calls and faxes with the probate clerks, and emails to and from the title company, Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. was able to obtain the necessary paperwork granting probate of the estate within an unprecedented two-week period.
At long last, the firm’s client closed on her dream town home last month and can finally rest easy.
