Co-op Termination

We Understand the Complex New York Co-Op Apartment Market

Perhaps no area of New York real estate law is more complicated than that regarding the acquisition, sale and financing of Co-operative Apartments. Unlike most other forms of real estate transactions, the purchaser of a co-op is actually buying shares in a commonly owned corporation. When a purchaser-borrower decides to purchase shares in a co-op organization, he or she will receive stock certificates and a lease or occupancy agreement to the apartment of their choice. Frequently, the shares and lease are assigned, at closing and held thereafter as security and collateral for the repayment of a co-op loan granted by a lender. Our firm is well-versed in the intricacies and complexities of such transactions.

Co-op Apartment lien terminations, (UCC-3 Terminations) and the sale of the borrower's interest in the corporation, generally calls for the services of a highly skilled attorney with specific experience in the co-op market — not only for the buyer and seller, but also for the lending institution.
