" (c) The Commissioner is authorized, in his discretion and under such terms and conditions as he may prescribe (including the minimum number of family units in the structure which shall be offered for sale and provisions for the protection of the consumer and the public interest), to insure any mortgage covering a one-family unit in a multifamily structure and an undivided interest in the common areas and facilities which serve the structure, if (1) the mortgage meets the requirements of this section and of section 203(b), except as that section is modified by this section, (2) the structure is or has been covered by a mortgage insured under another section (except section 213) of this Act, notwithstanding any requirements in any such section that the structure be constructed or rehabilitated for the purpose of providing rental housing, and (3) the mortgagor is acquiring, or has acquired, a family unit covered by a mortgage insured under this section for his own use and occupancy and will not own more than four one-family units covered by mortgages insured under this section. Any project proposed to be constructed or rehabilitated after the date of enactment of the Housing Act of 1961 with the assistance of mortgage insurance under this Act, where the sale of family units is to be assisted with mortgage insurance under this section, shall be subject to such requirements as the Commissioner may prescribe,.
