A studio apartment owner is curious about the allocation of shares in their co-op building and the impact on the monthly maintenance. Their ground floor studio, which shares a wall with a commercial space, seems to have the same, or even more, shares than much larger apartments — and subsequently, high maintenance. Could this be an error that is worth the time, and perhaps legal advice, to address in order to bring down the maintenance charge?
Please chime in with your advice.
