Hi EA,

Renovating an HDFC coop usually has the same or similar procedures as any coop. Board approval is required. Some structural changes may not be allowed and certain appliances like washer/dryer may not be allowed

A restriction may be the language in the flip tax. If a portion of the profit is paid to the coop upon sale/transfer of shares some HDFC coops define profit as the difference between price paid and gross profit.

Some coops may allow a deduction for capital improvement or renovation. Some HDFC coops encourage renovations. The flip tax is defined in the certificate of incorporation, bylaws or offering plan.

The only restrictions you should have would be those the CoOp Board has decided on
