Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.’s client wanted to purchase a luxury beach front house on the Atlantic Ocean. The client’s main concern was to ensure he had beach access and a private beach area in the rear of his home. As this was right after Hurricane Sandy, the sand and beach access to the home was minimal and the erosion of the shore line had left the client with about 10 feet of private access. This limited beach area caused a legal and financial issue to our client.
Our team of attorneys was able to research the law of riparian rights, as well as handle due diligence on the property and the beach area. We were able to investigate the town records and attend various town meetings to learn what the towns’ plan was for the beach rebuilding in the future was to be.
ALBPC learned that the Federal government was going to spend millions of dollars to replenish the sand and extend the beach area out for all the towns benefit. ALBPC’s client was able to purchase in confidence with our help. Today, the house has increased value and safety from the ocean waters due to the increased coastal build-up by the government.
Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.’s due diligence and contract negotiations were key to a successful transaction.
