Affordable Homeownership Unit Resales

When the owner of a unit with a North Suburban Consortium (NSC) affordable restriction or covenant decides to sell their unit (affordable homeownership unit), they are required to notify the NSC to ensure the successful sale to another low or moderate income applicant/household. The NSC does not hold lotteries for these, however, those on the NSC Affordable Housing Resale List receive notification by email that an affordable unit is being sold. 

To be added to the NSC Affordable Homeownership Unit Resale List and receive notification when an affordable homeownership unit is being sold, complete the Affordable Homeownership Unit Resale List Application (below) and return the same to the Malden Redevelopment Authority, P.O.
