Complications On Co-Op And Condo Boards
When a person own a condominium or is part of a co-op, he is a part of a larger community. The community has guidelines and procedures, and he must abide by them as a part of the community. However, sometimes disputes happen regardless of intention, and they come in the form of issues such as:
- Selling of co-op shares
- General maintenance failures
- Disputes between members
- Co-op evictions
- Nonpayment of duties
Co-ops and condominiums are similar on their surface but different in practice. In a condominium, one purchases a piece of the real estate in the building, and that apartment is his. In a co-op, a person buy shares in a corporation owning the building and rents his apartment.
In both, however, one has certain duties to a board, general maintenance and upkeep. If the tenant or the building does not meet these duties, then disputes are unavoidable.
What Do Clients Want From Their Case?
