Sec. 7. As used in this chapter, “adequate replacement dwelling” means a dwelling that is:

(1) at least comparable in essential accommodations and value to the dwelling acquired by the agency;

(2) a decent, safe, and sanitary dwelling meeting all minimum requirements of applicable building, housing, and fire prevention codes;

(3) located in an area not generally less desirable than the area in which the dwelling acquired by the agency is located, in regard to public utilities and public and commercial facilities;

(4) reasonably accessible to the principal place of employment of the head of the household;

(5) available for purchase or rental on the private market;  and

(6) available for purchase or rental at a price or rent within the financial means of the displaced person.  A dwelling available for purchase is considered to be within the financial means of a person only if, after taking into account that part of the acquisition cost paid to the displaced person plus any payment made under section 16 or 17 of this chapter, a loan commitment may be obtained from a lending institution, with or without the aid of any federal or other program of loan insurance, in the principal amount equal to the balance of the purchase price of the replacement dwelling.
