§

6264. Minor defects; repair and deduct

(a)(1) If the

park owner fails to repair a minor defect or noncompliance with this chapter or

noncompliance with a material provision of the rental agreement within 30 days

of receipt of written notice, the leaseholder may repair the defect or

noncompliance and deduct from the rent the actual and reasonable cost, not to

exceed one-half of one month's lot rent.

(2) No major

work on water, sewer, or electrical systems may be performed under this

section.

(3) The leaseholder

shall provide the owner with written notice of the cost of the repair or

service when the cost is deducted from the rent.

(4) The

leaseholder shall be responsible for any damage caused by the repair or

attempts to repair.

(b) The remedies

under this section are not available to a leaseholder if the noncompliance was

caused by the negligent or deliberate act or omission of the leaseholder or a

person on the premises with the leaseholder's consent. (Added 1993, No. 141

(Adj. Sess.), § 11, eff. May 6, 1994; amended 2007, No. 176 (Adj. Sess.), § 74;
