Ok, searching my brain for anecdotal info... aren't co-ops like totally able to discriminate, viz all those terrible stories of prospective buyers catering to the whims of the co-op boards in New York City? Like, no divorced people, no kids, only little dogs, no drug-using celebrities. If you have a need of specific type of skill set or some such, I think you can do it. Are you asking if you should? wikipedia says: Another key element (of housing co-ops) is that the members, through their elected representatives, screen and select who may live in the cooperative, unlike any other form of home ownership. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Co-op_housing Mariana Berkeley Cohousing, a condominium. >________________________________ > From: Harriet Lewis <hlewis [at] sonic.net> >To: cohousing-l [at] cohousing.org >Cc: Harriet Lewis <hlewis [at] sonic.net> >Sent: Monday, September 16, 2013 2:17 PM >Subject: [C-L]_ Guidelines for selecting membership > > > >In our limited equity co-op, residents own a portion of the entire community >rather than an individual unit .
