Real Estate Lawyers

JL Drafting is the leader in Residential and Commercial Designs. We also offer Expediting for Building Permits in the New York Metro Area.

In this economy every deal is precious. The last thing anybody needs is Certificate of Compliance (C.C.) or Certificate of Occupancy (C.O.) problems to cause delays in closing on a residential, commercial, or industrial building. We can help you to prevent this by confirming the C.C. or C.O. status of your building and legalizing it as well as any alterations or additions as required.  

We are a reliable expediting, drafting, permit, and design firm and have been in this business for over 17 years. As a result of this experience our expeditors are well acquainted with the many different requirements of the over 85 Building Departments which regulate Nassau and Suffolk County, Westchester, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Manhattan (NYC), and the Bronx. This experience goes a long way in obtaining your C.C. or C.O. in a timely manner.

Most of the time, if your client is in violation, it can be removed with a letter from us.

Our drafters routinely travel throughout Nassau and Suffolk County, Westchester, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Manhattan (NYC), and the Bronx to measure and draw plans for as-built and existing conditions. Our state of the art laser measuring equipment yield measurements accurate to 1/32 of an inch.

If you have a closing date or there is a medical emergency we can often obtain your C.C. or C.O. quickly on a hardship basis.

We also handle Zoning Variances and offer expert representation to present your case before Zoning Boards of Appeal as well as Architectural, Historical, and Site Plan Review Boards.  

Patent drawings are also our specialty. We can design and draft plans based on your idea or invention for the purpose of obtaining a U.S. patent. Let us provide you with the confidential service you deserve. 

Surveys, Special Use and Parent/Child (Mother/Daughter) Permits, soil borings, and radius maps are also available.

Please don't hesitate to call and speak to our owner, John Lagoudes, who is happy to answer any questions and can further explain all our services.
