(210 ILCS 115/9.16)
Disclosure of the manufacture of methamphetamine in a mobile home.
When a licensee or owner of a mobile home park has been notified in writing by law enforcement authorities that one of the mobile homes in the mobile home park has been used for the manufacture
of methamphetamine as
defined in Section 10 of
the Methamphetamine Control
and Community Protection Act, then the licensee or owner of the mobile home park shall inform a potential buyer of the mobile home that law enforcement authorities have notified the licensee or owner in writing that the mobile home has been used for the manufacture of methamphetamine.
The obligation of disclosure shall be imposed on the licensee or owner of the mobile home park only if the licensee or owner receives a written application for residency in the mobile home park from the prospective buyer prior to the prospective buyer acquiring the home and such application specifically identifies the applicable home and that the prospective buyer may acquire the home. If the licensee or owner provides the required disclosure to the prospective buyer, then the seller of the mobile home shall not have any right to seek legal or equitable remedies against the licensee or owner on account of or in any way related to the disclosure, even if it is determined that the disclosure was not required to be made under this Section (for example, if the disclosure results in the prospective buyer not acquiring the mobile home, then the seller of the mobile home may not seek any redress or equitable remedies against the licensee or owner providing the disclosure in any way related to or resulting from the disclosure). If a licensee or owner violates this Section as determined by an impartial hearing examiner appointed by the Director of Public Health, then: (i) a prospective buyer shall not have any redress or cause of action against a licensee or owner for such failure; (ii) a violation shall not be subject to the terms of Section 19 of this Act; and (iii) the only liability a licensee or owner shall have for a violation of this Section shall be the payment of a fine in an amount determined by the examiner after the conclusion of a hearing and the examiner determining that the licensee or owner, as applicable, violated this Section, such fine not to exceed $2,000 for each violation.
