46:8C-11.Rights of homeowners on offer for sale
2. a. If a private residential leasehold community landowner offers private residential leasehold community land for sale, he shall notify the board of directors of the homeowners' association created pursuant to this act of his offer, stating the price and the terms and conditions of sale.

b. The affected homeowners, by and through an association duly formed in accordance with section 6 of this act, shall have the right to purchase such land, provided two-thirds of the unit owners in the private residential leasehold community have approved the purchase, and further provided that the homeowners meet the price and terms and conditions of the private residential leasehold community landowner by executing a contract with the landowner within 45 days of being notified under subsection a., except as an extension of time may be mutually agreed upon by the landowner and the association; provided, however, that if there is no homeowners' association at the time a private residential leasehold community landowner offers private residential leasehold community land for sale and the landowner notifies homeowners individually as required under subsection b. of section 6 of this act, the period within which the terms and conditions of the private residential leasehold community landowner may be met by execution of a contract between the landowner and a homeowners' association shall be 60 days from the date of the notification of individual homeowners and at any time after notification to the landowner that a homeowners' association has been formed, in accordance with the provisions of subsection a. of section 7 of this act. If a contract between the landowner and the association is not executed within that extension period, then, unless the landowner thereafter elects to offer the land at the same price or at a lower price than specified in his notice to the directors or trustees of the association, he shall have no further obligations under this subsection, and his only obligation shall be as set forth in section 3 of this act.

c. If the landowner thereafter elects to offer the land at the same price or at a lower price than specified in his notice to the directors or trustees of the association pursuant to subsection a. of this section, the homeowners, by and through the association, shall have an additional 10 days after receipt of that offer to meet the price and terms of conditions of the landowner by executing a contract; provided, however, that if more than three months have elapsed since the receipt by the homeowners' association of the previous offer to sell the land under this subsection, the association shall have 30 days after receipt of the subsequent offer to meet the price and terms of conditions of the landowner by executing a contract.
