(b) (1) The board of directors of a credit union shall adopt a policy governing the acceptance by the credit union of notes receivable from nonmembers as consideration for the sale of assets owned by the credit union through
bona fide transactions.
(2) No credit union may accept notes receivable from nonmembers as consideration for the sale of assets owned by the credit union except in accordance with a policy adopted by the board of directors pursuant to paragraph (1).
(3) Transactions subject to this subdivision shall not be deemed to be loans to nonmembers for purposes of Section 14750.
(c) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), a credit union may permit a nonmember to participate in an obligation or extension of credit to a member as a joint applicant or co-obligor. An obligation or extension of credit made pursuant to this subdivision shall not be deemed a violation of subdivision (b) of Section 14800.
