236(E)(2) Use Agreement

Section 236 was created in 1968 to invent the private market for the development of affordable rental housing. Private lenders have provided interest-rate loans at 40-year rates, insured by HUD or financed by a state-run housing finance agency. HUD granted the owner an interest reduction (IRP) which subsidized the owner`s mortgage at an interest rate of 1%. The PIT was fully funded to be paid monthly to the mortgage lender for a total of 40 years. By a regulatory agreement or a user agreement, the landlord has only agreed to rent to households with incomes below or below 80% of the average income and to limit rents to rents based on costs approved by HUD. Finally, many properties have received additional assistance in the form of rent supplement (Rent Supp), rental assistance (RAP) and/or a contract under Section 8 Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA). The same applies to the calculation of basic and market rents in Section 236 during the duration of the decoupling contract and for refundable distributions during the term of the IRP contract. Owners of section 236 buildings originally developed by non-profit organizations, as well as certain real estate with leases and section 221 (d) (3) mortgages, cannot pay in advance without HUD`s permission. These advances are generally referred to as Section 250 advances (a). Owners must notify residents 150 days in advance.

Low-income residents will continue to pay Section 236 rents, as a new use agreement, as defined in Section 250 (a), will replace the original Section 236 regulatory agreement and remain in effect until the end of the initial mortgage period.
