§ 1006.310 - Rent and lease-purchase limitations.

(a) Rents. The DHHL must develop and follow written policies governing rents for rental housing units assisted with NHHBG funds, including methods by which rents are determined. The maximum monthly rent for a low-income family may not exceed 30 percent of the family's monthly adjusted income.

(b) Lease-purchase. If DHHL assists low-income families to become homeowners of rental housing through a long-term lease (i.e. 10 or more years) with an option to purchase the housing, DHHL must develop and follow written policies governing lease-purchase payments for rental housing units assisted with NHHBG funds, including methods by which payments are determined. The maximum monthly payment for a low-income family may not exceed 30 percent of the family's monthly adjusted income.

(c) Exception for certain homeownership payments. Homeownership payments for families who are not low-income, as permitted under § 1006.301(b), are not subject to the requirement that homebuyer payments may not exceed 30 percent of the monthly adjusted income of that family.

(d) Low-income families who receive homeownership assistance other than lease-purchase assistance are not subject to the limitations in paragraphs (a) and (b) of this section.
