Residential tenant relocation costs, as required by applicable laws.
Life/Safety Code Compliance and Disability Access. Up to 25 percent of the seismic construction hard costs portion of any Seismic Safety Loan may be used, to the extent legally required for completion of the Seismic Strengthening of or to permit occupancy of a Property, to pay costs of improvements to the Property to protect the life or safety of or to provide legally required disability access for occupants of the Property. In the event the Loan Committee determines that greater than 25 percent of the amount of a Seismic Safety Loan is generally requested to complete the work described in this Section 66A.9(2), the Loan Committee may recommend to the Board of Supervisors that this Section be amended to increase the 25 percent cap.
