  1. The Rental Housing Conversion and Sale Act of 1980
  2. The Condominium Act of 1976 Technical and Clarifying Amendment Act
  3. The Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act (TOPA)

An overview of these laws can be found at Condo and Co-op Conversion and Sales.

Certain forms must be filed by:

  1. Landlords when they seek to sell an apartment building or convert it to a cooperative or condominium.
