Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Mobile Home Landlord and Tenant Rights Act. In a Section concerning park owner remedies, provides that a fine imposed for a violation shall be considered separate from rent, and a park owner shall not cease acceptance of the rent payment if a violation fine has been issued.
House Floor Amendment No. 2 Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Mobile Home Landlord and Tenant Rights Act. Provides that if the tenant breaches any provision of the lease or rules and regulations of the mobile home park, the park owner shall give the tenant written notice specifying in writing the reason for any fine that may be imposed on the tenant. Provides that "fine" does not include fees that are imposed on a tenant for services or products provided by the park owner to the tenant. Provides that if a fine is imposed on a tenant, the following applies for 45 days after written notice of the fine is delivered to the tenant: (1) non-payment of a fine shall not be grounds for refusal to accept a rent payment; and (2) the fine shall not be deducted from a rent payment. Provides that acceptance of a rent payment shall not be construed as a waiver of an unpaid fine.
