RE Brokers Paying Lawyers is a No-No

For a long time, real estate brokers on Long Island drafted leases for their clients, the landlords. As time passed, these brokers became educated about the illegality of this act and decided to stop committing a felony or being subject to having their license revoked. However, real estate brokers often couldn’t help themselves. They needed to connive another scheme to have the leases drafted for them, rather than simply referring their clients to attorneys as the law required. So, many real estate brokers have found unethical attorneys to draft their leases while the brokers pay such attorneys directly while controlling the representation. Simply, these attorneys are answerable to the broker, not the client.

This article by Andrew Lieb, Esq. published in The Suffolk Lawyer discusses how the unethical attorneys should be checking their mailbox for a letter from grievance.
