In Reply to: Can a shareholder of a coop be evicted? posted by Stacy on February 07, 2000 at 20:52:20:
By now you've read the Pet Law pages from the homepage of http://tenant.net?
And have you read some Housing Court decisions concerning evictions and pets? (if not, go there: search on either 'pet' or 'dog')
Have you read your Proprietary Lease and the House Rules and the coop's By-Laws?
Here is advice from a local bar association (bar = group of lawyers): http://www.abcny.org/pethouse.html
And here is the OAG's URL where you'll find their guide 'How to Handle Problems with the Coop Board', among others any coop tenant, shareholder or not, should read.
Question: are there really only 4 units in the whole coop? Or did you mean a 4-unit building in a coop made up of many 4-unit buildings? The reason I ask is that the Board of Directors must be a minimum of 3 people, maybe 5 (it's in your ByLaws) and at least one of them must be a resident. Sponsors must give up control after 5 years. Usually, in small coops, all Board members live in the building. Which means you might be the only non-member if your coop is 4 units. Whcih means your neighbors have way too much power over your daily life and finances...
