Few areas of New York residential real estate present the opportunities and headaches of coops and condos.

Like single family homes, over the long term, primary residence coop and condo apartments have proven to be among the largest assets held by their owners and have appreciated well in value, despite occasional periods of flat to negative appreciation. Yet, unlike single family homes, residents of coops and condos rely on their neighbors to run their buildings, usually with the assistance of professional management companies.

While these boards of one’s peers frequently don’t get the respect and appreciation they deserve for volunteering their time to safeguard and improve the value of their neighbors’ investment and lifestyles, the need for seasoned counsel in this arena is both obvious and inescapable to provide the right advice on questions of fairness, legality and prudence.

Boards must come to grips with thorny questions on a regular basis and Hollander and Company LLC has years of experience in assisting boards with questions like:

- What are appropriate criteria to accept or reject potential purchasers of coop units?

- When is it better to authorize an assessment instead of a raise in maintenance or common charges?

- How can boards avoid charges of discrimination when dealing with shareholders and occupants?

- What are responsibilities of unit owners vs. responsibilities of the Coop or Condo?

On the other side of the coin, shareholders or unit owners trying to assert their rights alone against a professionally managed and represented board face quite an uphill battle. For the individual shareholder or unit owner who feels they have not been treated fairly, professional legal guidance and advocacy can often mean the difference between enjoying the rights and benefits you’re entitled to as a shareholder and unit owner or not. In today’s world, where a coop or condo apartment represents hundreds of thousands of dollars in investment and more, shareholders and unit owners need experienced guidance.

Through the use of our innovative Rapid Contracts program, buyers and sellers of New York City residential coop and condo units, as well as single family homes, can retain the firm’s services over the Internet twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, dramatically accelerating the initial drafting of contract documents. The program can be a huge benefit to real estate sales brokers who can throw away their set up sheets and rest easy, knowing that the essential details of a contemplated transaction have been submitted electronically for prompt attention by our staff. For more detailed information on our Rapid Contracts system, please consult our Real Estate Online Services page.

If you’d like to send us a request for information or assistance, please go to our general online inquiry form, send us an email directly at, or call Jay Hollander, Esq. at 212-576-1061.

And don’t forget our Real Estate Mini Portal, we provide late breaking real estate news daily, as well as a collection of useful links for residential and commercial properties, as well as coop and condominium interests.

We have been very fortunate to be represented by Hollander and Company LLC when it came time to trademark our company name. Their attention to detail was useful to us in helping clarify exactly what it was we were doing and what to expect. Also Jay Hollander was always sure to keep us up to date on what was happening. In this day when you hear horror stories about attorneys never following up it's good to know you've got someone on your team that you can trust.

Mr. Hollander consistently worked with my interests in mind, and often juggled his calendar around to accommodate meetings. He checks his email, voicemail, and responds during hours when most attorneys wouldn’t.

I would like to thank you personally for the excellnt Lan Management contract review, which you recently completed for us. It brought to light many issues that might have gone unnoticed if we had taken the path we pursued on a prior software management agreement. In today's Software and Services market it is imperative that the right Legal firm with the right experience review your contract before you sign on the dotted line. In closing I would like to say I really appreciated your efforts and attention to detail.
Michael A. Ritholz - Data Processing Manager - Borah, Goldstein, Altschuler, Schwartz & Nahins, P.C.

Your thoroughness and diligence in preparing for the closing made it a breeze for me. In addition, your kindness, respectful nature and sense of humor made it all enjoyable.
Laurie J. Harrison

Thank you so much for taking on my co-op purchase. As a first time buyer, there was no limit to how much about the process I did not understand. The patient guidance afforded to me by Hollander and Company LLC helped enormously. I am sincerely grateful for your diligence and smarts applied on my behalf. I will be more than happy to recommend your services to anyone looking for assistance in this area.
