"The day after you buy out, you are paying full taxes."
A second factor is that a co-op must pay off its subsidized loans and mortgages, which means that it must finance this with a new mortgage through the private market, adds Sloman

, although many Mitchell-Lama rentals have left the program and many more co-ops are contemplating it, only one Mitchell-Lama co-op (the Anthony J. Contello in Brooklyn in 1989) has actually done so as of this time.
Its namesake, Contello III, also in Brooklyn, is currently considering privatization, according to Sloman

"We will step up to the plate," said HPD's Gary Sloman, until the legal proceeding are resolved.

Gary Sloman, the director of operations for HPD's Division of Housing Supervision, acknowledged that an owner is not obligated to accept the subsidy program but said that his agency would "strongly encourage the owner to accept the program."
