What is a co-op?real estate, Chicago, co-ops
In Chicago, co-ops were the first form of apartment ownership, built between 1911-1929. The first “high rises” along the lakefront, .When you purchase a co-op you are purchasing shares of stock in a legal entity, usually an Illinois corporation, that owns the real estate. Along with the shares, you receive a Proprietary Lease that entitles you to occupy a certain unit. Instead of a deed, you own shares in the whole building.
Shareholders in a cooperative also pay real estate taxes, but they do not receive individual tax bills. A single tax bill is issued to the corporation and shareholders’ proportional share of the total bill, based on the number of shares they own, is included in their monthly assessment, which explains why co-op assessments appear higher than condos.
How is a co-op different from a condo?real estate, Chicago, co-ops
A co-op is different from a condominium only in its legal and financial form— the essential idea of ownership is the same. But instead of being simply “an apartment you own,” you are purchasing shares of stock in a legal entity, usually an Illinois corporation, that owns the real estate. Along with the shares, you receive a Proprietary Lease that entitles you to occupy a certain unit. Instead of a deed, you own shares in the corporation.
The purchase options differ among co-ops, with a few cooperatives not permitting financing and others restricting borrowed amounts to 50% of appraised or purchase price. Further, banks don’t offer traditional mortgages on co-ops, but do have similar loan offerings that provide the same benefits.
