Unfortunately, co-op Board discretionary decisions to approve or deny a Purchaser admission in a coop still exists. Purchasers still face denials for admission to coop buildings. There was a time when many co-op Boards concluded that if a bank would give a prospective buyer a loan, then the Board would consent to the sale of an apartment.
