Founded in 1982, Golden, Wexler & Buatti, P.C., continues to offer services consistent with its original mission statement: To provide reliable, responsive and affordable legal counsel to the Banking / Lending community.
As part of its diversified real estate and banking practice, the firm offers its clients a high level of individualized service, backed by technical expertise, within the areas of residential, commercial and construction lending. Our attorneys and staff are knowledgeable, courteous and professional in all situations.
With frequently changing federal and state lending regulations, consumer protection laws and secondary market requirements, our associates and staff pride themselves on remaining current. Golden, Wexler & Buatti is continually reviewing memorandums and bulletins regarding proposed and actual changes in the various statutes, rules and regulations. Proposed changes in these laws are immediately disseminated to our attorneys and implemented as soon as the changes become effective.
Our office offers all the amenities required in today’s environment. These include large closing rooms, a “state of the art” computer system with full multi-media capability supported by industry specific software, a high volume photostatic reproduction capability, and high speed scanning and faxing capabilities. Our office is centrally located just off the Meadowbrook State Parkway in Westbury in the heart of Nassau County. It features ample parking and is located within 5 to 10 minutes from two branches of the Long Island Railroad.
As concerned practitioners, we take a “hands-on” approach with all files which come into our office. Title reports are reviewed within twenty four hours of receipt. In the event that any problem exists with the title, we immediately contact the Borrower’s attorney and the title company in an effort to resolve the problem quickly and efficiently. As a practice, our staff continuously interfaces with the Lender, Mortgage Broker and Real Estate Broker. By keeping abreast of any problems or unusual circumstances that might have a bearing on the closing or impact upon the saleability of the loan, outstanding issues can be resolved in a timely manner.
All our attorneys and staff strive to make the closing experience as pleasant as possible for the Borrower. We recognize that if a Borrower leaves a closing with a favorable impression, that person, most often, will continue both as a customer of the Lender and Broker and serve as a potential future referral. Therefore, we at Golden Wexler & Buatti constantly stress with our attorneys and staff the importance of always being willing to go the extra mile to keep a customer satisfied throughout the closing process.
As an accommodation to our Lenders and Brokers, our office routinely handles closings in an area ranging from Rockland to Suffolk Counties. When the mortgagor is purchasing a Cooperative Apartment, we will travel to the managing agent’s office to handle the closing. If required, we are available to handle closings at offices other than our closing facilities.
Our professional staff is diligent in its efforts to both coordinate with and respond to the needs of the Lender’s loan counselors in order that closings will not be delayed. Once clearance has been given by the Lender, closings generally take place within two (2) business days.
Closed loans are also handled expeditiously by our office. As a general rule, files are returned to the Lender by the next business day following the closing. However, before a file is returned, it is again reviewed in order to minimize errors and to insure that the closing package is complete, correct and ready for sale.
Quality Assurance is of the utmost importance and always takes precedence over speed. Even after the closing, we continue to monitor the file and follow up as required. This includes documents not provided at closing as well as documents sent for recording.
We handle Real Estate transactions in Nassau, Suffolk, New York City and Westchester.
