Buying a Co-op
Being Prepared to Fulfill the Requirements of the Board
Manhattan Co-op ownership differs from that of Condominiums in that you own shares in a Corporation instead of holding Title to a piece of property.  The Corporation is governed by a Board of Directors.  It is this Board that establishes what the requirements are in order to purchase an apartment in their building.

Unlike condominiums a purchaser can be rejected by the coop board. In a Manhattan condominium the board only has first right of refusal and must buy the apartment for the same terms … (9 comments)

coop: Manhattan Luxury Condos, Condops and Coops - 09/29/11 03:52 PM
Since January 1, 2011, all real estate brokers and agents in New York are required by law to provide written disclosure of who they represent. In New York buyers have the right to their own representation. On-site sales agents at new developments represent the interests of the seller "sponsor" developer, not the buyer. As Manhattan real estate continues to become more transparent, more buyers will benefit from working with an experienced buyer's agent. A buyer's agent has without limitation, the following fiduciary duties to the buyer: reasonable care, undivided loyalty, confidentiality, full disclosure, obedience and duty to account.     A … (3 comments)

coop: Manhattan Real Estate: Q&A: What is an Aztec Recognition Agreement? - 01/26/11 01:50 AM
A: The Aztec Recognition Agreement (sometimes spelled Aztech) is a three-party contract between the borrower, lender, and coop. It is a form that must be signed by the borrower, lender and the coop.
(The form gets its name from the company that produces it)
It is the document that the bank draws up to give its lien the first priority over the co-op's lien in case the shareholder defaults. Also, the co-op corporation promises to notify the lender if the owner fails to pay maintenance or other fees to the co-op.
The co-op corporation is prohibited from permitting additional financing or … (13 comments)

coop: Determining Price Differentials Using Condo and Coop Offering Plans - 10/08/10 03:24 PM
A seller recently asked what is the price differential for each floor of the same line in a Manhattan apartment building.   In Manhattan there are many variables in determining the price differential for each floor. A beautifully renovated apartment on a lower floor can easily sell for a higher price than an "original condition" apartment on a high floor. The parlor floor in a townhouse may be worth more than the 4th floor if it's a walk-up.   The second floor in a pre-war cast iron building can have unique windows and higher ceilings than similar apartments on higher floors. … (7 comments)

Actually he was still married to his first wife, Jean Acker because his divorce in California would not be final until the following year. Valentino was charged … (14 comments)
