Hi Adina,

The listing that your question refers to PHG at 310 East 46th Street is a condop.

A condop is a residential building or portion that includes cooperative and condominium ownership structure. The condominium has a residential cooperative unit separate from the commercial unit and or garage unit.

A Coop can have underlying mortgage a condo can not. A condop such as 310 East 46th offers the flexibility of a condo such as 90% financing allowed, No Board Interview and also allows sublets like a condo.

A condop can offer the best of both condos and coops. The rules and amenities of a condo, tax deduction, lower closing costs (no NY state mortgage recording tax) like a coop because a coop is not considered "real property" it is considered "personal property."

The downside of a land lease is the lease of the building with the owner of the land.
If the lease is a long term lease then the only worries you have is the acceleration clause of the
Lease and that is usually reviewed and explained to you by your lawyer.
A land leased apartment sale price is much lower relative to the one that is not land leased.
Many time a land leased apartment will have a pretty high maintenance. So even after you pay off
Your mortgage, you will be helping the land lease holder pay off their landlord.
Best of luck.
Let me know if there are any other questions.

Dear Marsha,

The brokers who answered your question are absolutely correct. Since you also looked at another property on E 57th Street, I would recommend obtaining an experienced buyer's broker who knows the area.

Currently 225 E 57th is repairing the exterior of the building which is mandated by Local Law 11 and required every five years. That's why you're seeing scaffolding outside the building.

I live and have sold apartments on E 57th Street and would be happy to assist you if you don't have a buyer's broker. Do feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance.

Hi Atul,

Personally I think we can do better as far as the monthly costs are concerned. Is this for a primary residence or investment? I work for the largest real estate company in NYC (Prudential Douglas Elliman) and would be glad to discuss options in that area.

Joseph Ferrara, Esq. answered:
On the face of it---yes, it does look high. But without knowing the cost of the co-op apartment (and other factors) it is hard to give you a complete answer. Is there a temporary assessment built in for a capital improvement? It requires investigation and a little time. Contact me at if you need further help. I am a real estate attorney. ... more
