Property Tax Reduction

Cronin & Cronin Law Firm, PLLC practices exclusively in the area of property valuation issues. Our areas of expertise include tax certiorari, or the protest of real estate tax assessments, and condemnation. Our lawyers have successfully reduced the assessments, and thereby the real estate taxes, on thousands of cases. In addition to obtaining reductions in real estate taxes, we also provide our clients with services in areas related to real estate tax issues.

Cronin & Cronin prides itself on personal service. Every property is given individual attention. Clients are kept abreast of the status of their action as well as any changes to NYS law which may affect them. We consistently update our analyses on cases and work closely with our clients to ensure that their rights are protected. Our high level of expertise, our commitment to our clients, and our sterling reputation have afforded us continued growth and success.

Our lawyers have represented and obtained reductions on virtually every commercial property type. We represent office buildings, industrial buildings, shopping centers and retail locations, and restaurants. But our client list also consists of many other property types, as well, including apartment buildings and condominium complexes, nursing homes and assisted living facilities, car washes and auto dealerships, marinas and resorts, mining plants and communication cables, race tracks and amusement parks, roller rinks and bowling alleys, catering halls and country clubs. We are both knowledgeable and experienced regarding all property types.

Cronin & Cronin has a state-of-the art computer system, which allows us to ensure that every property is filed on appropriately and within the given time limit. Throughout New York State, there are various filing periods for the various municipalities. For each property, our office must verify the assessments on the tentative assessment roll and then file a Grievance application. We then confirm the assessment on the finalized assessment roll and file a Notice of Petition and Petition. After completing this process for a given tax year, we are then able to begin negotiations with the taxing municipality.

Cronin & Cronin has an extensive database of comparable lease and sale information, making property evaluations both accurate and immediate. Our computer system also calculates property values and property taxes so that an over-assessed property can be determined at a glance. Our expertise in property valuation issues and our knowledge of market conditions and demographics help Cronin & Cronin to achieve successful results for our clients.

Upon obtaining a reduction in real estate taxes, Cronin & Cronin will work with the property's mortgage holder in order to reduce the mortgage payments. We will also alert clients to any exemptions they may qualify for, such as New Construction Exemptions, as well as file the appropriate paperwork on their behalf. We work closely with the municipalities to ensure that these exemptions are implemented on the assessment role and that our clients receive the full benefit of these exemptions
