On and after July 1, 2004: (a) Whenever federal funding is not involved, real property is acquired by any condemning authority through negotiation in advance of a condemnation action or through a condemnation action and the acquisition will result in the displacement of any person, the condemning authority shall:

(1) Provide the displaced person, as defined in the federal uniform relocation assistance and real property acquisition policies act of 1970, and amendments thereto, fair and reasonable relocation payments and assistance to or for displaced persons. Relocation payments shall not be required until title to the real property vests in the condemning authority.

(3) Nothing in this section shall preclude the voluntary negotiation of fair and reasonable relocation payments and assistance between the displaced person and condemning authority. If such negotiations lead to agreement between the displaced person and the condemning authority, that agreement shall be deemed fair and reasonable.

(4) Under circumstances where a displaced person demonstrates that receipt of such payments, in advance of the actual relocation, is required to enable the relocation and estimates are provided by the displaced person to the condemning authority that will allow such authority to estimate with reasonable accuracy the relocation payments, 75% of such amount shall be advanced to the displaced person or paid to third parties on behalf of the displaced person to facilitate the relocation. Any remaining payment due will be made within 30 days after the relocation has been completed. Payment of such relocation advances shall not be required until title to the real property vests in the condemning authority.

(b) This section shall be a part of and supplemental to article 35 of chapter 58 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto.
