55-2009. SALES OF HOMES AND TRANSFER OF LOTS. (1) No landlord shall deny any resident who owns his home the right to sell the home on a rented lot or require the resident to remove the home from the lot solely on the basis of the sale.
(2) The landlord shall not exact a commission or fee for the sale of a home on a rented space unless the landlord has acted as agent for the seller pursuant to a written agreement. The landlord may act as agent for the seller only upon the voluntary agreement of the seller and only if the landlord is licensed if licensure is required by law.
(3) A new rental agreement must be signed between the landlord and a prospective resident prior to the sale, transfer, assignment or subletting of the home if the home is to remain in the community. From the date of sale, assignment, transfer or subletting the new resident shall be bound by the terms of the agreement.
(4) The landlord shall approve or disapprove of the transfer, assignment or subletting of the home lot on the same basis that the landlord approves or disapproves of any new resident. Notice of approval or disapproval shall be given in writing within five (5) working days of receiving a written application.
(5) No home shall be removed from any community until the rent, including the month when the home is moved, together with all other charges specified in the rental agreement, are paid, or the provisions of section 55-2009A, Idaho Code, have been fully complied with and the landlord notified of date and time of removal.
