Q: I have to make six copies of a board package. I want to impress! Are three-hole binders okay? Plastic sleeves? Binder clips? Stapled? Should I include tabs for sections? Any other advice for making a great impression? Or what to avoid?
A. The co-op board package is a crucial component of getting the apartment you want, so it’s important to make sure your package is professional-looking, well-organized and easy to read, our experts say.
Conventional wisdom says that almost all of a co-op building’s expenses—about 90 percent by one estimate—are fixed, leaving shareholders little say on how their monthly maintenance fees are spent, and little room to save.
Q. I'm renovating my co-op, and I'm thinking of taking out a radiator in my living room to free up wall space, especially since my apartment is always hot. How would I go about doing this? Would it affect the property values?
