Habitat Magazine: “Shareholders Must Replace Leaky Jacuzzi with Standard Tub”
What Happened: Ram Avrahami and Andrea Gural purchased a cooperative apartment containing a jacuzzi and used it for several years with no complaints. In 2017, though, the building superintendent (who lived below them) noticed that the tub was sinking; a little later, she also notified them that their toilet was leaking into her apartment. The shareholders made arrangements to fix the two conditions, the tub and toilet were duly removed, and the repair work performed. However, before the tub could be reinstalled the board of directors notified them that since the building’s rules prohibited whirlpool tubs, the shareholders had to replace the jacuzzi with a standard tub.
