Are you buying a co-op apartment in New York City? If so, you may be aware that the typical NYC co-op board package will ask for several personal reference letters.

How to prepare a New York City co-op board package:

The personal reference letters you submit with your co-op board application are designed to help the board obtain a qualitative sense for how you are as a person. They want to know how you would interact with and contribute to their co-op community.

How to buy a co-op apartment in NYC:

The body of a personal reference letter should touch on the following points:

How did the reference meet you? How long have you known each other, and why did you become friends?

What sorts of activities have you attended together? Examples may include theater, sports, charities, a previous workplace, professional associations, or travel.

Your references should also specify your defining character traits, offering examples of why words such as “responsible, trustworthy, honest and ethical” are fitting descriptions.

Your references should also highlight your educational background as well as academic and other achievements, if they are privy to these aspects of your life.

Does your reference have any experience living in a co-op or being on a board? If so, including this information will increase the credibility of the overall reference letter.

To avoid delays in submitting your co-op board application, it’s suggested that you request reference letters as soon as you have a fully executed contract. If you have any questions about how many letters are required or who you should ask to write them, you should ask your buyer’s agent to clarify the application requirements with the co-op’s managing agent.

It’s also a good idea to request more than the minimum number of reference letters. This will avoid the risk of delays or having to be reliant on a less than stellar reference letter from one individual.

One final word of advice. Each reference letter must include the reference’s full contact details, including his or her email, phone and address. You should also ensure that the letters are correctly formatted and are free of any grammar or spelling mistakes.
