Hello,

As Jeanne Goodman mentioned, we did adopt a transfer fee at JP Cohousing. When first proposed, the proponent called it a "flip tax". The idea promptly went dead in the water! By the time it got back into serious consideration it had been renamed "transfer fee". It still took many meetings and at least two blockages of consensus for it to get through.

Regards,
