Renter in a building where most others are co op shareholders

Posted by Judy Harris on July 23, 1999 at 13:20:58:

My building went co op about 15 years ago and I couldn't afford to buy.
About half the tenants bought and many of these later sold to new people.
These new people have over the years made major capital improvements to the
building which have upped my rent substantially.
They developed "house rules" which they didn't publish to us renters until
just recently.
I have a cat who I take in and out of the building on a regular basis, at least
twice a day. They are making all kinds of unreasonable demands about this, and
I wondered if anyone knew of a real estate or civil liberties attorney I could
consult as to what constitutes a "reasonable" demand of a co op board that a
renter like me would be obliged to obey.
Also, there are penalties for disobeying certain rules, $100 or $250. How
would they collect such penalties?
