I am very sorry to hear about your predicament! Your best bet is to refer to your contract and perhaps consult with an attorney.

Suzanne MacDowell answered:
You didn't ask a question, so I am not sure what advice you are seeking. However, I will say that most new owners take the building 'subject to' the existing leases. You may want to find out if that is the case with your present owner, but if so, then you shouldn't be affected at least until your lease expires. ... more

Hi Nikki,

As a Brooklyn coop expert, I'd like to give you some sound advice about your unit. What I'd like to do is make an appointment to see the space and meet with you to hear about your ideas. It may not be necessary to make any changes to your space in order to sell.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Have three agents from different companies come in and provide you with free CMA'a. That should give you a pretty good idea. Don't rely on automated on-line valuations.

Call your local board of Realtors.... I'm sure they'd be very interested in helping you out. I don't know NY law, but this sort of thing would carry serious penalties here in Florida.

Navigate a complicated process. Buying or selling a home usually requires disclosure forms, inspection reports, mortgage documents, insurance policies, deeds, and multipage settlement statements. A knowledgeable expert will help you prepare the best deal, and avoid delays or costly mistakes.

Information and opinions. Real estate agents can provide local community information on utilities, zoning, schools, and more. They’ll also be able to provide objective information about each property. A professional will be able to help you answer these two important questions: Will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have resale value when I am ready to sell?

Help finding the best property out there. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised in the market, and it will take some investigation by your agent to find all available properties.

Negotiating skills. There are many negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing, terms, date of possession, and inclusion or exclusion of repairs, furnishings, or equipment. In addition, the purchase agreement should provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. Your agent can advise you as to which investigations and inspections are recommended or required.

Property marketing power. Real estate doesn’t sell due to advertising alone. In fact, a large share of real estate sales comes as the result of a practitioner’s contacts through previous clients, referrals, friends, and family. When a property is marketed with the help of an agent, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Your real estate agent will generally prescreen and accompany qualified prospects through your property.

Someone who speaks the language. If you don’t know a CMA from a PUD, you can understand why it’s important to work with a professional who is immersed in the industry and knows the real estate language.

Experience. Most people buy and sell only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each purchase. Even if you have done it before, laws and regulations change. Real estate agents, on the other hand, handle hundreds of real estate transactions over the course of their career. Having an expert on your side is critical.

Objective voice. A home often symbolizes family, rest, and security — it’s not just four walls and a roof. Because of this, homebuying and selling can be an emotional undertaking. And for most people, a home is the biggest purchase they’ll every make. Having a concerned, but objective, third party helps you stay focused on both the emotional and financial issues most important to you.
