Order, Supreme Court, New York County (Marylin G. Diamond, J.), entered December 29, 2010, which denied plaintiffs' and defendants' motions for summary judgment, unanimously affirmed, with costs.

Plaintiffs seek return of a down payment, as well as the recovery of expenses and attorneys' fees, with respect to a failed real estate transaction.   There are triable issues of fact, including whether the fence and air conditioner support beams were minor encroachments that did not render title uninsurable and whether they were curable within a reasonable time.

THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER

OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
