Land Use Restriction Agreements

Examples Land Use Restriction Agreements (LURAs)

MFA's Housing Development Department has provided the two examples below of Land Use Restriction Agreements (LURAs) so developers can see the types of restrictions that may be encountered when obtaining funding from MFA. The first is for a New Mexico Housing Trust (HTF) rental loan, and the second is an HTF homeownership development project. These templates are updated from time to time and may not represent the exact form currently in use.
