A housing co-op is when people come together to own or controll the building in which they live.Instead of buying real property,they buy shares,or a membership,in a cooperative corperation.That corporation owns the building,land and any common area.

As a co-op member,you are entitled to occupy a specific unit idefinitely until you sell.Members democratically govern the cooperative corporation and elect a board to oversee operations.

When you own a co-op,you have the right to occupy the space that comprises your unit.You own shares in the overall ownership of the building.

Our community also includes The Waterford at Rossmoor,a classy group of two high rise buidings much like a first class hotel.The Waterford is made up of various size condos.This is ideal for residents who wish meals and housekeeping services..
