As a former realtor in Westchester & a member of the co-op Board for my building, here is my advice:

1. You need to contact the property management company for this co-op, ask for the representative for this particular building (unless you already know) and find out if the seller is up to date with the monthly maintenance payments. If the seller is up to date - great news. If the seller is not up to date, ask them if any eviction or legal action has been taken against the seller. Get the dates and ask what their next steps will be. If the property manager refuses to tell you anything, tell them they will hear from your attorney - then call your lawyer.

2. Ask your attorney if it's possible to contact the seller's attorney and find out why there's a delay. Your attorney can contact the IRS & find out about any "negotiations".

3. My gut feeling is the seller owes the IRS more money than the co-op is worth and the seller doesn't have it. The seller also has legal fees and I can guarantee the lawyers want a piece of the co-op to pay the legal fees. This leaves the IRS short and who has priority over the cash from the sale of the co-op the lawyers or the IRS.

What property are you referring to? There was no link or address. You really need to contact a local Realtor who can work for you as a Buyer's Agent.

The greystones share a garden but are individually managed. Make an offer as most brokers or buildings will not hand out financials to anyone who asks. Once you make an accepted offer all financials and house rules will be sent to your attorney for review. Remember you still are not in contract and can back out before escrow down payment and contract is signed by you. let your attorney review and advise you. ... more

Besides being closer to shops and the subway, the south side is the preferred historic district with many well kept pre war buildings. Many are complete with huge internal gardens. Once you travel north, the neighborhood has a different war buildings, private homes and smaller walk up buildings abound. ... more

I'm a retired real estate salesperson. The truth is real estate brokers must adhere to all Federal and State Fair Housing Laws. This includes opinions on schools, neighborhoods, crime, etc. Our license is our business and penalties are severe.

What I also recommend in addition to the replies below is to visit the school during morning & afternoon drop off & pick ups. You need to speak with as many parents as possible when they are dropping their kids off in the morning or picking up their children at 3:00. Also there is plenty of after school activities where you can also meet parents.

HIi Tom

There are several options in Jackson Heights, some of the ones that come to mind are the following:

La Fusta at 80-32 Baxter Ave which has some phenomenal skirt steak.
La Cabana on Northern and 86Th st has a ridiculous lunch special and killer empanada's.
Boulevard on Northern and 83rd has great Colombian Food.
Thai Son at 4010 74th St has great Pho and is actually clean.
La Gloria on Northern, next to La Cabana has some of the best Cuban food in the city and has live music on weekends.
Pio Pio on Norther is also a crowd favorite. I hope this helps.

Cody Swartz answered:
I agree with Anna. I have worked on deals in co-ops in Phoenix, and their main focus is on a credit check and a background check. This particular location does not mind if the unit is a primary or secondary residence as long as the owner does not rent out the unit. However, I believe New York co-ops are much different from Phoenix co-ops You could reach out to some of the people who live there and ask them. What does your Realtor think? Have they worked with this co-op before?
