Our firm is proud of the outcome and hopes the Church continues to thrive
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
The New York real estate law firm of Rubin & Licatesi enforced the rights of the Church and received an Order from the Supreme Court in favor of The Christian Holiness Ministries, helping to save the pastor’s church building from being partitioned by another interested party.
According to the case of Burchell Gordon v. Aubrey Greenidge, [New York Supreme Court, Queens County; Index no: 4130/13], in 1999, Burchell and Greenidge agreed to purchase the subject property to use as the Christian Holiness Ministries, Inc.’s premises on 111-07 Jamaica Ave, Queens, NY. They agreed that they would maintain title in their individual names as trustees and/or constructive trustees for the Church. As “tenants in common” with the defendant Greenidge, Gordon sought to partition the building, but Greenidge filed a counterclaim which indicated the plaintiff did not have the right to do so.
The plaintiff failed to serve a reply to the counterclaim, thus Greenidge sought a summary judgment or default judgment on the first counterclaim, an order seeking enforcement of the Nassau County order by the Queens County Sheriff and an order dismissing the plaintiff’s complaint. Greenidge’s stance was that Gordon should have no real interest in the property and only hold the property in a constructive trust.
“We are honored to stand up for someone who really deserves it,” said firm partner Richard Harris Rubin. “Our firm is proud of the outcome and hopes the Church continues to thrive.”
