There are many factors which may be involved with answering this question. One being rendering legal advice.
May we suggest you contact an attorney whose area of focus is Real Estate. They will gladly help you explore the best approach to a favorable outcome. Most can guide you with a simple free consultation.
Please be mindful that no Real Estate professional may, unless an attorney admitted to practice law in N.Y.S, give legal advice.
What is considered legal advice?
Often times, questions such as yours may seem harmless in answering, but should only be addressed by an attorney.
One way to gauge if someone is giving legal advise is as follows:
If the answer to your question has [alternative] advance approach, and someone, (a broker, or otherwise,) for direct gain or potential gain suggests you make, say, a right (instead of a left) when answering your question; and as a result of this suggestion you run the risk of being injured (financially) by such answer, this is considered giving legal advise.
Play it safe. Ask an attorney.
Although we DO NOT recommend any one attorney per se, we do suggest you Google "Real Estate Lawyers in (your ZIP Code).
