Much like single-family residential homes, condos and co-ops need a upgrade and remodel from time to time. However, apartment renovation in New York City can be challenging.
You will need approvals from your building management. And you may need permits for certain renovations from the City of New York. If you are doing kitchen remodeling or bathroom renovation, you will need permits for plumbing or changing electrical wires. Taking care of this tedious step early on will keep things running smoothly
