Hello AT,

My wife and I just bought a coop in Queens and will be closing soon.
Prior to closing we will be inspecting the apartment. Our lawyer/friend tells us that it's not necessary to hire an inspector as you would with a house as the physical structure is under the aegis of the board.

Looks like we're doing it ourselves. As first time buyers we were wondering if there are any good resources online related to apartment inspections? Any suggestions (ie things to look for and check) would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Paul
