All of our members have a "seniority number"; all households on the
waiting list have a "waiting list number". Waiting list people have paid a
$350 refundable deposit. If a unit becomes available (say a household
wants to sell their share) all the members have a chance to take the newly
available unit, in seniority number order. It is then offered to the
waiting list people, in W.L. number order. In practice, only one household
(mine, as it happens) has changed units, but we wanted to leave the option
open. We were very clear, though, that you cannot use your seniority to
"bump" someone; only to take a different available unit.
