The MNA operates as a “buffer zone” between the landlords, who lease their flats to the city to operate them as administrators, and the people renting them – providing various assurances.
It assumes the risks associated with the lease and the landlords can be certain of receiving rent every month. They can also be sure that their flat will remain in good order.
Through the MNA, the city assumes the responsibility for dealing with any issues related to the housing.
It will also seek to prevent any issues arising by providing social support to the tenants and helping them to keep their housing and preventing any future crises.
