(a) The covenants or restrictions imposed by the agency pursuant to subdivision (f) of Section 33334.3 may be subordinated under any of the following alternatives:

(1) To a lien, encumbrance, or regulatory agreement under a federal or state program when a federal or state agency is providing financing, refinancing, or other assistance to the housing units or parcels, if the federal or state agency refuses to consent to the seniority of the agency's covenant or restriction on the basis that it is required to maintain its lien, encumbrance, or regulatory agreement or restrictions due to statutory or regulatory requirements, adopted or approved policies, or other guidelines pertaining to the financing, refinancing, or other assistance of the housing units or parcels.

(2) To a lien, encumbrance, or regulatory agreement of a lender other than the agency or from a bond issuance providing financing, refinancing, or other assistance of owner-occupied units or parcels where the agency makes a finding that an economically feasible alternative method of financing, refinancing, or assisting the units or parcels on substantially comparable terms and conditions, but without subordination, is not reasonably available.

(3) To an existing lien, encumbrance, or regulatory agreement of a lender other than the agency or from a bond issuance providing financing, refinancing, or other assistance of rental units, where the agency's funds are utilized for rehabilitation of the rental units.

(4) To a lien, encumbrance, or regulatory agreement of a lender other than the agency or from a bond issuance providing financing, refinancing, or other assistance of rental units or parcels where the agency makes a finding that an economically feasible alternative method of financing, refinancing, or assisting the units or parcels on substantially comparable terms and conditions, but without subordination, is not reasonably available, and where the agency obtains written commitments reasonably designed to protect the agency's investment in the event of default, including, but not limited to, any of the following:

(A) A right of the agency to cure a default on the loan.

(B) A right of the agency to negotiate with the lender after notice of default from the lender.

(C) An agreement that if prior to foreclosure of the loan, the agency takes title to the property and cures the default on the loan, the lender will not exercise any right it may have to accelerate the loan by reason of the transfer of title to the agency.

(D) A right of the agency to purchase property from the owner at any time after a default on the loan.

(b) Notwithstanding the definition of “construction and rehabilitation” in subdivision (a) of Section 33487 , an agency that has merged redevelopment projects pursuant to Article 16 (commencing with Section 33485 ) of Chapter 4, and that is required to deposit taxes into the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 33487 , may use any of the funds for the purposes and in the manner permitted by Sections 33334.2 and 33334.3 .  Nothing in this subdivision shall allow an agency with merged project areas pursuant to Article 16 (commencing with Section 33485 ) to utilize the provisions of paragraph (1) , (2) , or (3) of subdivision (a) of Section 33334.2 so as to avoid or reduce its obligations to deposit taxes from merged project areas into the Low and Moderate Income Housing Fund.
