Property owners in Brooklyn applied to the Department of Buildings seeking to construct and open a restaurant on Third Avenue spanning three adjacent lots. For this project, however, the Building Code required a second means of egress to be established between the lots.
The property owners’ architect attempted to create and record documents into the chains of title for the three properties to create this second means of egress, however, the architect’s efforts were unsuccessful.
Time was of the essence, and Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. was hired to draft the necessary documentation and achieve their successful recordation, so that the recorded documents could be submitted to the Department of Buildings as proof of the second means of egress, thereby enabling the project to move forward.
In only forty-five days, Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. strategized and drafted both a Party Wall Restrictive Agreement and Declaration and an Egress Easement Agreement and Declaration, procured from the architect and prepared both the proper diagram and the Professional Certifications needed for submission to the City Register, and successfully recorded all documents into the chain of title for each of the three adjoining lots.
Jackie Halpern Weinstein prevailed on drafting and recording and John M. Desiderio served as the managing partner on the case.
