License & Access Agreements

Our team of legal experts here at Rosenbaum & Taylor has successfully represented property developers and owners to negotiate and draft license and access agreements. If the contract cannot be mutually agreed upon, then our lawyers seek a judicially issues license, on an expedited basis, which will provide temporary access to an adjoining property. Our team will pursue this as par Section 881 of New York’s RPAPL. Our attorneys can also help if you need to stop a neighboring property owner from starting or continuing with construction work if they have not obtained a license and failed to take all the required protective measures to safeguard your property and theirs.

Mechanic’s Liens

When it comes to Mechanic’s Liens (compensation claims), we represent material suppliers, general contractors, and subcontractors seeking payment for work done and services rendered. We also represent contractors and project owners that are trying to vacate an exaggerated or improper Mechanic’s Liens.

What is the Diversion of Trust Funds Actions?

We have successfully represented different clients in the Diversion of Trust Fund’s Actions. Such lawsuits offer a means for claimants and would-be beneficiaries to recover money owed on a completed construction project. The suit provides an avenue through which to recoup what is owed if the owner or developer (or defendant) goes out of business, or the Mechanic’s Liens foreclosure action was unsuccessful due to the lack of funds.

The beneficiary might collect from the Trustees the reasonable lawyer’s fee, which they have accrued to retrieve the diverted Trust Funds. This can also be applicable in asking for punitive damages. According to the Lien Law, if the Trustee is a corporation, then its principal will be held personally liable for settling the monies owed.
