The provisions of the dormitory authority act shall govern the relationships of the dormitory authority, the fund, and the board of higher education in the city of New York with respect to all such leases, subleases or other agreements and actions thereunder, and the fund may apply to the payment of rentals and other payments required from the fund by any such leases, subleases or other agreements and may pledge as security for such payments to the dormitory authority with respect to such leases, subleases or other agreements all or part of the resources of the fund. The dormitory authority shall not issue obligations for the provision of a senior or community college facility unless a certificate of availability of funds has been approved by the director of the budget and an appropriation for such facility has been enacted.

Neither the state, nor the city or the city university of New York, shall be liable for any rentals payable by the fund pursuant to the terms of any lease, sublease or other agreement entered into by the fund under this article. Any such lease, sublease or other agreement shall contain among its terms a statement to that effect.
