An applicant or recipient may retain personal or real property owned by him, or in combination with any other person, without reference to its value, if it serves to provide the applicant or recipient with a home. The basic home may be a multiple-dwelling unit if the units not occupied by the applicant or recipient are producing income for the support of the applicant or recipient consistent with their rental value.
Any applicant or recipient who does not own a suitable home may apply other real property or the proceeds received therefrom for the acquisition of a home. Such property in whatever form held shall be considered to be used as a home during such time as the following conditions apply:
1. A plan has been made which will provide that the property will be used through conversion or transfer within six months for the purpose of providing a home.
2. Any proceeds received from the sale are used within one year of the date of conversion or application for aid, whichever is later, for the purchase of a home, or for the costs of moving, necessary furnishings, or necessary repairs or alterations to the home, except that an amount may be set aside within the limits permitted by Section 11154 of this code.
3. Proceeds of conversion which are received in a form not readily applicable to the initial payment on purchase of the home are retained, and all payments thereafter received on such proceeds are applied to the balance due on the home, or for the costs of moving, necessary furnishings, or necessary repairs or alterations to the home.
