: This guy had suggested that I move into another apartment which he owned and had planned to eventually put on the market in the same building because my decorating skills helped sell the apartment I had been living in--it sold within two weeks while other apts in the building had been on the market for at least six-nine months. I called the Co-op Authority (or whatever that city agency is) to find out which apartment he still owns (so a lien could be put on it). I was told that it is confidential information and Co-ops do not fall under the same rules governing real property ownership. The management agent of the building would not give me the info either.
Easy way to find his property! Go to the Hall of Records in the county of that coop-sublease, in Manhattan it is at 31 Chambers St, 2nd floor, cross-street Centre St. Deeds, UCC filings, & personal property are in that computer database, a public record. UCC = mortgage (or the liens mtg co's place on the property when they give you a mtg). Unless he paid cash or is paying the sponsor, you'll find all his coop properties in that computer. You can also try the NYC Dept of Finance, same building: tax assessments are public record, but I don't know if they are accessible by name or just by address.
ps: who did you call? there is no 'coop authority'. However, the Attorney General does have some input into coop conversions...
