(3)But, despite subsection (1)—

(a)no interest or other charge is to be payable in respect of the interest free element of a subsidised loan,

(b)the local authority may not demand repayment of that element of such a loan (or any part of it) unless the applicant to whom the loan is paid disposes of an interest in the land or premises, and

(c)the repayment element of such a loan is to be repaid in instalments of such amounts and at such times as the authority may determine.

(4)For the purposes of this section, a person is to be treated as disposing of an interest in any land or premises if—

(a)the person disposes of the land or premises (or any part of it or them) by way of sale, exchange or gift, or by way of the creation of any right or privilege over that interest or by any other way except by way of lease, the grant of a standard security or other charge or the creation of a servitude, or
