Selling a coop (cooperative) in New York City. Kiritsis Law Group 212 922 0005

Apr 16, 2021

The sale of a Coop in New York City is one that ideally should not be made without adequate review of the possible legal and tax ramifications. Oftentimes, a significant tax obligation may be facing coop sellers at the closing table, which may have been easily avoided with some utilization of tax avoidance strategies.


Some frequently asked questions with regards to this topic, include:

How would a prospective buyer plan to finance such a transaction?

Is the underlying property subject to a mortgage?

Are there any title issues with regards to the property?

Is property subject to any zoning restrictions?

Would a Limited Liability Company (LLC) be utilized with regards to transferring the property at issue?

Are there any peripheral legal issues surrounding the overall real estate deal (i.e. immigration, tax, anti-money laundering compliance, bankruptcy, foreclosure, divorce, eminent domain, re-development)?
