Gaining Board Approval When Buying A Co-Op

When attempting to purchase a co-op apartment, gaining a co-op board’s approval can be one of the most challenging steps. The board of directors has the power to decide if a prospective buyer will be approved to become a shareholder in the cooperative. Our attorneys will carefully review the requirements of your particular co-op in order to assist and guide you as you attempt to obtain the board’s approval.
