To many prospective Manhattan buyers, one of the most attractive benefits of purchasing in this condop at The Eastmore on the Upper East Side is that after one-year of primary residence, you as the shareholder can sublet, with board application approval (yet no board interview necessary) and can sign leases for as little as six months to as long as two years. Unlike a coop, which usually has a sublet policy of not permitting leases for more than two or three years out of five, there are no limits to subleasing here.
Like co-op owners, an Eastmore condop owner owns shares in the building, and also pays maintenance fees (which includes the real estate taxes). The tax deductible portion of the maintenance for this building vary from about 55-60% annually, as per the building CPA.
If a quiet apartment with great views are important, then this sunny, well-proportioned studio, with beautiful expansive western views (and gorgeous sunsets) is turnkey ready for you. It overlooks the roof top of Robert F. Wagner Middle school and its tennis courts.
