to owners of existing residential housing for occupancy by such persons and families,
for the rehabilitation of existing residential housing owned by them. The loans may be
insured or uninsured and may be made with security, or may be unsecured, as the agency
deems advisable. The loans may be in addition to or in combination with long-term
eligible mortgage loans under subdivision 3. They may be made in amounts sufficient
to refinance existing indebtedness secured by the property, if refinancing is determined
by the agency to be necessary to permit the owner to meet the owner's housing cost
without expending an unreasonable portion of the owner's income thereon. No loan for
rehabilitation shall be made unless the agency determines that the loan will be used
primarily to make the housing more desirable to live in, to increase the market value of the
housing, for compliance with state, county or municipal building, housing maintenance,
fire, health or similar codes and standards applicable to housing, or to accomplish energy
conservation related improvements. In unincorporated areas and municipalities not
having codes and standards, the agency may, solely for the purpose of administering
the provisions of this chapter, establish codes and standards. Except for accessibility
improvements under this subdivision and subdivisions 14a and 24, clause (1), no secured
loan for rehabilitation of any new text beginowner-occupied new text endproperty shall be made in an amount which,
with all other existing indebtedness secured by the property, would exceed 110 percent

private lenders upon equivalent terms and conditions. Accessibility rehabilitation loans
authorized under this subdivision may be made to eligible persons and families without
limitations relating to the maximum incomes of the borrowers if:

(1) the borrower or a member of the borrower's family requires a level of care
provided in a hospital, skilled nursing facility, or intermediate care facility for persons
with developmental disabilities;

(2) home care is appropriate; and

(3) the improvement will enable the borrower or a member of the borrower's family
to reside in the housing.

The agency may waive any requirement that the housing units in a residential housing
development be rented to persons of low and moderate income if the development consists
of four or less dwelling units, one of which is occupied by the owner.

or to assist in rehabilitating existing residential housing owned and occupied by those
persons or families. No loan shall be made unless the agency determines that the loan
will be used primarily for rehabilitation work necessary for health or safety, essential
accessibility improvements, or to improve the energy efficiency of the dwelling. No
loan for rehabilitation of owner occupied residential housing shall be denied solely
because the loan will not be used for placing the residential housing in full compliance
with all state, county or municipal building, housing maintenance, fire, health or similar

exceed the maximum loan amount to the extent necessary to comply with federal lead
abatement requirements prescribed by the funding source. In making loans, the agency
shall determine the circumstances under which and the terms and conditions under which
all or any portion of the loan will be repaid and shall determine the appropriate security
for the repayment of the loan. Loans pursuant to this subdivision may be made with
