According to Elbaz, the board of directors can even fine the shareholder and demand that the co-op be compensated for possible legal fees. And legal subtitles must comply with the rules and regulations that are stipulated in their sublease agreement, experts say – and these are generally the same as the rules applicable to full shareholders. Subtenants are subject to the settlement of the building as well as the rental agreement of the shareholder or sponsor as well as the shareholder`s own lease agreement. Although they are in the minority, there are some positive opinions about sub-leasing. For example, a potential buyer who thinks he or she could be relocated abroad for a year or two can rest more easily, knowing that he can sublet his apartment while he is away. Or you might be interested to know that if the real estate market breaks your nose, you can rent your unit, buy elsewhere and sell the unit if the market reappears. However, there is room for divergence. “Co-ops don`t want a temporary building,” says Wurtzel. “Constant entrances and exits lead to the wear and tear of common areas and require staff. Shareholders and subtenants also have different interests in the building and conflicts may arise. Elbaz agrees to a point. “In theory, [subtenants] are bound by the same rules as shareholders, but [in the event of a problem or violation], the board of directors would blame the shareholder with whom they have a contractual agreement and the shareholder would in turn take care of the tenant.” Q. I know I cannot sublet my co-op without the approval of the board of directors.

What`s the worst thing that could happen if I do it? “As long as subtenants sign the subletting of a driver who declares that he respects the co-op`s regulations,” says Wurtzel, they should be no more of a problem than any other occupant of the building. “A board of directors can sue a sponsor to terminate the ownership contract for a particular apartment if a sponsor tenant becomes a problem,” Wurtzel says. “The sponsor would then launch a lawsuit against its own tenant.” If you buy a co-op apartment, you buy shares in the company that owns the building. These actions give you a lease for your unit. If you move and continue to own your shares, you can either empty the device or sublet someone else`s apartment. A sublease is simply another term for unterlease. Q. Do I have any options if the cooperation board lowered my tipping request? The co-operative chamber could completely prohibit subletting, but allow it in a particular case. In these unusual circumstances, you should probably refer your case to the House. “Working with many subtenants may not be as attractive to buyers,” he adds.

“And many lenders are angry at subtenants in co-op buildings and will often try to limit the number of their buildings in the buildings to which they want to offer financing.” “In theory, it becomes a legal problem between the koop and the shareholder,” Harwood says.
