If our co-op has work done on the outside of the building such as pointing and painting and shareholders windows get dirty and need to be cleaned from the outside, is that a co-op expense since it was co-op initiated work? What about sponsored-owned units?

NJ 500 unit, contractors clean after themselves, regardless - TedT-NJ Oct 07, 2007


If a contractor working a project on behalf of the coop corporation creates dirt, debris, damage, etc., the contractor is responsible for any remediation. We do not distinguish in these cases between sponsor vs. owner units.

We do distinguish when a “renter” has an issue with something within the apartment that is “not” the coop’s reasonability, e.g.: wall repairs, broken sink, broken cabinet, etc. In this case, the renter is referred to the sponsor’s rental office.

Read the contract between the coop and the contractor. In most cases like this, Unless otherwise specified the cleaning is limited to broom sweep and hosed cleaned. The contractor, (again unless otherwise specified) is not going to have the windows professionally cleaned.
Next time put it in the contract (if it isn't there already).
