In response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Chicago has joined the State of Illinois in issuing a Stay at Home order effective Saturday, March 21st at 5pm CT. In addition, City of Chicago facilities are closed to the public. Staff are prioritizing essential services to protect the health and safety of our residents and employees.

The following documents should be submitted to the Department of Housing (DOH) to begin processing of a request for review of the sale of the affordable unit in compliance with the City of Chicago Mortgage, Security and Recapture Agreement:
If the MSRA requires sale to a qualified household, for an affordable price, and the buyer to sign a deed restriction, the buyer must submit a Home Buyer Application, and all required documents to DOH for review to verify they are a qualified household.
DOH senior staff will review these documents once they are submitted to the department as one package. After the review is completed, staff will contact the seller, and provide specifications of what will be needed in order for DOH to issue a release.
