Under current law, no. But an experienced agent (or attorney) can find out the reason. If you suspect discrimination you can bring an administrative hearing (at no cost & without need of a lawyer--though I would advise one) and at that hearing the Board is legally REQUIRED to give the reason.

Under current law they do not. However there is a bill currently in the city council that will require coops to disclose in writing their reasons for rejecting a buyer. While there is much support for the bill at this time I do not know if the bill will be signed into law. See article below
