58-25,114.Rules and regulations of landlord, when enforceable; notice; limitations. (a) A landlord may adopt rules or regulations, however described, concerning the tenant's use and occupancy of the mobile home park. Such rules or regulations are enforceable against the tenant only if they are written and if:

(1) Their purpose is to promote the convenience, safety or welfare of the tenants in the mobile home park, to preserve the landlord's property from abuse, to make a fair distribution of services and facilities held out for the tenants generally, or to facilitate mobile home park management.

(2) They are reasonably related to the purpose for which adopted.

(3) They apply to all tenants in the mobile home park in a fair manner.

(4) They are sufficiently explicit in prohibition, direction or limitation of the tenant's conduct to fairly inform that person of what must or must not be done to comply.

(5) They are not for the purpose of evading the obligations of the landlord.

(6) the prospective tenant is given a copy of them before the rental agreement is entered into.

(b) Notice of all such additions, changes, deletions or amendments shall be given to all mobile home tenants 30 days before they become effective. Any rule or condition of occupancy which is unfair and deceptive or which does not conform to the requirements of this act shall be unenforceable. A rule or regulation adopted after the tenant enters into the rental agreement is enforceable against the tenant only if it does not work a substantial modification of that person's rental agreement or the tenant consents to it in writing.

(c) A landlord shall not:

(1) Deny rental unless the tenant or prospective tenant cannot conform to park rules and regulations;

(2) require any person as a precondition to renting, leasing or otherwise occupying or removing from a mobile home space in a mobile home park to pay an entrance or exit fee of any kind unless for services actually rendered;

(3) deny any resident of a mobile home park the right to sell that person's mobile home at a price of the person's own choosing, but may reserve the right to approve the purchaser of such mobile home as a tenant but such permission may not be unreasonably withheld, provided however, that the landlord, in the event of a sale to a third party, in order to upgrade the quality of the mobile home park, may require that any mobile home in a rundown condition or in disrepair be removed from the park within 60 days;

(4) exact a commission or fee with respect to the price realized by the tenant selling the tenant's mobile home, unless the park owner or operator has acted as agent for the mobile home owner pursuant to a written agreement;

(5) prohibit meetings among tenants in the mobile home park relating to mobile home living and affairs in the park community or recreational hall if such meetings are held at reasonable hours and when the facility is not otherwise in use;

(6) charge a fee based on the number of members in the tenant's immediate family. Immediate family includes the tenant, the tenant's spouse, any children of the tenant or the tenant's spouse, and the parents of the tenant or the tenant's spouse;

(7) charge a fee to an individual resident who shares such resident's mobile home with one other person; or

(8) charge a fee for a guest of a resident who stays in such resident mobile home less than 30 days in any calendar year.
