Kovitz Shifrin Nesbit can advise your Association throughout the complex process of the sale of all units in the Association, sometimes commonly referred to as condominium de-conversion or condominium conversion.
As the demand for rental units continues to increase, a new phenomenon has emerged - the sale of all of the units in a condominium building to a third party (ex. developer) who may then “de-convert” the condominiums into apartments.
With over 30 years of experience providing representation to thousands of associations, Kovitz Shifrin Nesbit is well-equipped to advise on all of the challenging legal factors involved in the sale of all units and/or the Illinois condo de-conversion process.
KSN can provide legal guidance by:
Counseling the Board and Management as to the sale of property process
Communications with the Board and Management concerning the transaction
Attendance at meetings with the Board, management, and Owners
Reviewing the terms in a solicited or unsolicited letter of intent
Reviewing Real Estate Contract and/or purchase agreement documents
Advising the Board regarding the provisions outlined in Section 15 of the Illinois Condominium Property Act
Advising the Board regarding applicable provisions of the Association’s Declaration related to the sale of all units
Assisting owners in the execution of required sales documents
Preparation of corporate documents to Obtain Owner Approval including voting documents and notices
Preparation of Articles of Dissolution of Corporation
Addressing current contracts to which the Association is a party
