R. O. March 24, 2023
The top notch real estate lawyer in Brooklyn and Staten Island. Peter Weinman represented my family when we sold a house in Brooklyn and moved to Staten Island. There were issues with our buyer that caused problems for both of our deals but Peter kept calm (which helped keep my wife and me calm) and went over with us the best and worst case scenarios so that we could decide our best planned course. It was not a perfect experience (due to bad luck and bad timing) but Peter made it better. He is very responsive to emails and phone calls and always got back to us even if it was after hours. A++

Biography

Buying or selling a home is the most significant and daunting task most of us will ever face. Whether you're buying or selling your first home - or if you've done it before - you owe it to yourself to let Pete Weinman be your personal guide. Pete takes a very hands-on approach and will always be your only point of contact throughout the entire process, whether it's a house, a condominium, or a cooperative unit you're buying or selling. He'll return your calls promptly, won't rush you off the phone, and will explain everything to you as things progress.

Pete has been an active Richmond County Bar Association member since 2002, where he chairs the Technology Committee. He has been elected every three years to sit as a Director since 2011. Pete is also a founding member of New World Preparatory Charter School, Staten Island's first charter middle school, where, since 2008, he's sat on the Board of Trustees and chairs the Legal Committee.

Working full-time for Project Hospitality (feeding and helping the homeless, the mentally ill, and those affected by HIV/AIDS) from 1988 to 1995, Pete attended the College of Staten Island (CUNY) from 1985 to 1992, where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in English. Eight years later, continuing to work while attending classes at night, Pete received his JD from New York Law School in 2000. While attending New York Law School at night, Pete began working as a freelance “computer guy and law student.” He designed and automated databases, legal forms, and office documents/systems for many law firms located throughout the City of New York, some of which continue to use his automated forms to this day.

Legal Answers
78 Questions Answered
Q. Is whether a business carries insurance public knowledge? Could I look this information up online?
A: A home inspector's insurance is not public information. Although you did not say why you're asking, if it's because you want to sue an inspector for failing to spot a problem (the typical reason), you should look to your agreement with the inspector and you'll probably notice you're limited to suing for the cost of the inspection - that's what they usually say.
Q. When I initially signed my lease for my apartment in Edmonton Alberta there was nothing on it indicating a no pet rule
A: You did not ask a question but I assume you want to know if you can break your lease. We need more info and I am not licensed in your jurisdiction but my opinion is "probably no." How long ago did you sign and move in? Did you have a pet when you moved in or did you just (or are you about to) get a pet? As for the lease, if it was a deal killer for you (you said you would not have signed it), why didn't you write in the names of your pets or something to indicate you intended to have them? How much more time do you have under the lease?
Q. If the HOA has placed fines and penalties for $2100 and offer no payment plan is it in my best interest to get an atty?
A: Unless your HOA rules so provide, the HOA is not obligated to offer a payment plan. How many months you are in arrears? (For example, is it 21 months at $100 per month, or 3 months at $700 per month, etc.)? I ask because if your payments are $100 per month, for the sake of argument, and you have fallen behind, a payment plan would take you a very long time to catch up - and that could explain why they are unwilling to entertain it. Yes, you are free to retain an attorney to negotiate payments but that's also going to cost several hundred dollars, at least.
