unfortunately, coop boards do not have to state a reason for not accepting a purchaser's application. While it is understandable that you are upset and are suspicious of the board's motivations, there are legitimate reasons for a board rejecting an application. Common reasons are a purchaser will have insufficient liquid assets after closing to insure their bills will be paid should they lose their job or pets that are unacceptable.

Sorry for the bad news. Coop boards can turn down people for many different reasons, the biggest one is financial.
Throughout the years, I have had all cash buyers refused with cash offers due to their working or financial situation. Eventhtough you have cash for the purchase of a coop, the boards usually look at your credit, how much you will have after the sale and steady income. They want people who have stable income for obvious reasons.
There are other reasons they refuse people, each board is different. But I have found this to be the biggest one.
I wish you luck on your next venture.
If you need any help or advice, feel free to call me anytime.

unfortunately, the boards do not have to state a reason???however, if you have proof than speak
to an attorney. Otherwise, move on, perhaps it was a blessing in disguise.
