November 20, 2018 -- “I am pleased that the County Board of Legislators voted to pass a bill that will rationalize the process by which co-op owners and buyers can transact their units in a timely fashion, and will reduce concerns over housing discrimination. Under this new law, co-op boards will have a reasonable deadline of 15 days to either acknowledge a completed housing application, or inform the potential purchaser of any problems that may exist with their submission. Co-op boards will then have 60 days to either accept or reject the housing application. If an applicant is rejected, their rejection letter will be submitted to the Human Rights Commission for review. This bill restores the requirements of the Westchester County Housing Disclosure Law, and it is my plan to sign it immediately.”


George Latimer, Westchester County Executive
