It is always the buyer's option to have an inspection done on a property and as a REALTOR i always recommend it to my clients, However when it comes to a co-op, the management company are responsible for keeping the building well taken care of, the choice is up to you.

To directly answer your question, however I am closing on a Condo here in Tucson, AZ and my client had inspections done just in case. Really $300 or whatever they cost there to protect an investment that costs much more than that.
Best of luck.
The choice is up to you. But with Coop's the building management is responsible for the upkeep of the building/structure. Hope this helps.
Should you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me.
Best of Luck!

In my transactions, none of my clients have ever opted to have an inspection done on a coop or condo. Until recently one client of mine has decided to have an inspection done on a condo (foreclosed unit) that he is purchasing. It is a personal preference and it will probably cost you between $200 - $300 if you decide to have one done. Please discuss with your agent and attorney.
Best of luck.
