   (B)   Reasonable relocations costs shall include:
      (1)   The actual expenses incurred in moving the displaced resident’s manufactured home and personal property, including the reasonable cost of dissembling, moving and reassembling any attached appurtenances, such as porches, decks, skirting and awnings, which were not acquired after notice of closure or conversion of the park, and utility “hook-up” charges;
      (2)   The cost of insurance for the replacement value of the property;
      (3)   The cost of repairs or modifications that are required in order to move the manufactured home; and
      (4)   Before the execution of an agreement to purchase a manufactured home park, the purchaser must notify the park owner, in writing, if the purchaser intends to close the manufactured home park or convert it to another use within one year of the execution of the agreement. The park owner shall provide a resident of each manufactured home with a 45-day written notice, by first class mail, of the purchaser’s intent to close the park or convert it to another use. The notice must state that the park owner will provide information of the cash price and the terms and conditions of the purchaser’s offer to residents requesting the information. During the notice period required herein, the owners of at least 51% of the manufactured homes in the park or a non-profit organization which has the written permission of the owners of at least 51% of the manufactured homes in the park to represent them in the acquisition of the park shall have the right to meet the cash price and execute an agreement to purchase the park for the purposes of keeping the park as a manufactured housing community. The park owner must accept the offer it meets the cash price and the same terms and conditions set forth in the purchaser’s offer; except that, the seller is not obligated to provide owner financing. For purposes of this section, CASH PRICE means the cash price offer or equivalent cash offer.
