Any transaction or modification of any transaction with an affiliated person to buy, lease, or sell real or personal property, or take that property by gift.

For purposes of this subdivision, “full disclosure” shall include, but not be limited to, (A) the affiliated person’s source of financing for any real property involved in the transaction and (B) whether the association or any subsidiary thereof has a deposit relationship with any financial institution or holding company or affiliate thereof providing the financing.
