Subchapter 002 : Permits and Rules(Cite as: 10 V.S.A. § 6240)
§ 6240. Sale of homes located in parks
(a) Prior to selling a mobile home located in a mobile home park, the mobile home owner shall notify the park owner by certified mail of the name and mailing address of the prospective purchaser. The seller may be held liable by the purchaser or prospective purchaser for failure to comply with this section.
(b) A purchaser or prospective purchaser of a mobile home located in a park shall not be refused entrance except for the inability of the purchaser and the purchaser’s household to meet the terms of the proposed lease or to qualify under a valid admission policy of the park. Upon approval for entrance into the mobile home park, the purchaser or prospective purchaser shall be offered a written lease pursuant to section 6236 of this title. If the purchaser or prospective purchaser does not notify the park owner in writing of any objections to the lease terms prior to occupancy of the mobile home park, the purchaser shall be deemed to have accepted the lease, regardless of whether the purchaser signs and returns a copy of the lease to the park owner. The seller’s failure to provide the notice required in subsection (a) of this section shall not be grounds to deny the purchaser or prospective purchaser’s application.
(c) A park owner shall not charge or collect any commission on the sale of a mobile home located in a park unless the park owner contracts to sell the home. (Added 1973, No. 264 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. April 16, 1974; amended 2007, No. 176 (Adj. Sess.), § 62.)
