4781.45 Notification of violation of rules to resident.

If a resident commits a material violation of the rules of the manufactured home park, of the manufactured homes commission, or of applicable state and local health and safety codes, the park operator may deliver a written notification of the violation to the resident. The notification shall contain all of the following:

(A) A description of the violation;

(B) A statement that the rental agreement will terminate upon a date specified in the written notice not less than thirty days after receipt of the notice unless the resident remedies the violation;

(C) A statement that the violation was material and that if a second material violation of any park or commission rule, or any health and safety code, occurs within six months after the date of this notice, the rental agreement will terminate immediately;

(D) A statement that a defense available to termination of the rental agreement for two material violations of park or commission rules, or of health and safety codes, is that the park rule is unreasonable, or that the park or commission rule, or health or safety code, is not being enforced against other manufactured home park residents, or that the two violations were not willful and not committed in bad faith.

If the resident remedies the condition described in the notice, whether by repair, the payment of damages, or otherwise, the rental agreement shall not terminate. The park operator may terminate the rental agreement immediately if the resident commits a second material violation of the park or commission rules, or of applicable state and local health and safety codes, subject to the defense that the park rule is unreasonable, that the park or commission rule, or health or safety code, is not being enforced against other manufactured home park residents, or that the two violations were not willful and not committed in bad faith.
