July 29, 2023 My name is Diamond Simpson Roberts, ESQ, MSPH and I am convinced that I can be a value added asset to most any company. As the first in my family to graduate a four-year university, I graduated from Wayne State University Law School in 2000 but could not afford a bar prep course upon completion. After over 20 years, I sat for the July 2022 UBE, successfully passed and am currently licensed in three states! This is an example of my self-motivation, internal drive and passion. I offer over 28 years of diverse experience in healthcare, strategy, sales/marketing, legal/policy and business savvy. I have many years building, leveraging, and sustaining long term relations to drive revenue as an entrepreneur and for corporations. My analytical strengths provide me with an innate ability to think through tough situations/topics while viewing both vantage points (which is excellent for law and life). I have been appointed to serve on numerous committees due to my heightened ability to identify client issues and priorities and provide solutions based upon relevant products, services and needs. I have led teams with and without authority; specifically, I have managed teams for an Adult Foster Care Facility called Etonne Cares, during my post-graduate fellowship with the largest Catholic Healthcare System in the U.S. and during my two-year executive order appointment with the Federal Government (Presidential Management Fellowship). Most importantly, I am a collaborative team player who knows how to improvise, overcome and adapt! I offer numerous years of being a pharmaceutical trainer and being an adjunct using the online platform. I welcome the opportunity to continue in the interview so that I may further highlight the skills I can (and will) contribute to my success in the role. Respectfully, Diamond Simpson Roberts, ESQ, MSPH DQSSIMPSON@GMAIL.COM M: 313-942-6747

Purchase And Sale Agreement

New York

Asked on Sep 8, 2023

Purchase and sale agreement and tenants?

I am in the process of purchasing a rental property that currently has tenants living in it. I am looking to have a Purchase and Sale Agreement drawn up, however, I am uncertain of my rights and responsibilities as the new owner of the property with regards to the existing tenants. I would like to know what the agreement should include regarding the tenants and my obligations as the new owner.

Craig C.

Answered Sep 12, 2023

In short, you would “step I to the shoes” of the prior owner. That said, you must be careful with your due diligence to make sure what your stepping into works for you.

Real Estate Contract

New York

Asked on Dec 26, 2021

Can you purchase or refinance under a land contract?

I’ve been living here for 2 years. Currently have been working with my credit union and they are having a terrible time trying to understand the legalities of my land contract first off, and secondly they just don’t seem to know what they are doing. It’s been over 8 months, 4 different loan officers and I’m once again waiting for someone else to help finish this thing out. It’s only $60,000 with a $120,000 appraisal. So, as of now I am stuck paying 2.5x monthly under this land contract than I was promised would be an easy mortgage process. So any guidance in the right direction would be very helpful. It’s a New York home. 20 yr fixed, no balloon, with a (brace yourself) 12% apr. HELP ME PLEASE! One month I’m being told to authorize a credit check for a first time homebuyer grant method of mortgaging this property. The next it’s authorizing it for a refinance. I do have earnest money deposits for over $3,000 and another $3000 paid towards principal under this land contract also.

Jane C.

Answered Jan 11, 2022

I suggest you speak with a New York real estate attorney. That attorney needs to review the documents related to the transaction.

Lease Terms

New York

Asked on Jun 26, 2022

Am I liable for august rent payment if I’m granted a 30 day notice on july 1 st?

I am currently living in a apartment with a lease agreement from March trough August 31st. I am to make a pay on the 1st of every month. As per the agreement I can choose to renew the lease and the end of the term in August. The lease then goes in to mention if I choose not to not to renew the least I will be granted a 30 day notice on July 1st. Does this mean I can leave the end of July and I’m not liable for August rental payment? Although it stated my term is until august 31st?

Angela Y.

Answered Jul 5, 2022

Hi there, For a definitive answer, a lawyer would need to see the exact lease language; however, it is very unlikely that not renewing a lease would result in a free month of rent (unless there is another part of the lease that is relevant or there was an error in creating the document).

Building Lease

New York

Asked on Nov 22, 2023

What's a 'triple net' in a building lease?

I recently signed a lease for a commercial building and I noticed that there was a clause in it that referred to a 'triple net'. I'm not sure what this means and if it could have any implications for me as the tenant. I'm hoping to get some clarity on this as I want to make sure I'm fully aware of my obligations under the lease.

Craig C.

Answered Nov 28, 2023

The tenant pays all expenses in connection with the property, such as insurance, taxes, upkeep and maintenance.
