All co ops have rules that are in your board package. Family members are generally allowed to stay.

Hi CK. I see absolutely no problem here. Yes, immediate family can certainly visit for a while. I wouldn't think your board or managing agent would need to know anything here. You stated this is a short term thing while your parents are waiting for their place to be prepared for occupancy.

If you believe they would be there for more than six months to a year or longer, it might then be wise to contact your board president for an informal discussion. Good luck.

Your connection to NY Housing may be the key to the answer. If you have income restrictions in your apartment, or family configuration guidelines, you could be adversly affected. You need to check on your proprietary lease. Family and guests are a common occurence for residents. The key is at what point does the "visitor" become a resident and what regulations are in place.

Generally, Yes immediate family members can stay in your coop apartment. However, you should alert the managing agent for your building and let them know the circumstance.

Each co-op has it's own regulations. It is best to find out what the "official policy" is in your particular building without giving out actual information. Then find out what the "unofficial " policy is. You can find that out in the bylaws or just casually asking someone in the building or management office. Remember to just be asking without giving them any details.

You have to be aware that most housing developments will allow temporary "visits" from family. They do not want to hear that people are using your place till they find another place to live. You are allowed to have a room-mate without question. You can have family members and friends visit without question in most buildings. In some buildings they do not allow more than an overnight visit, however I do not believe that would be the case with your building. It is best to find out what your particular building does, and then frame your story around it. Too much information to co-op members is always not that good of an idea.
If your parents move in and there is no problem, remember that at any time, someone may say something so try and keep the information to yourself.

Depends upon what your Proprietary Lease says, but almost all co-op's allow immediate family members to reside in the unit without board approval.
