Sec. 3282.253  Removal of prohibition of sale.

    (a) If a distributor or dealer has a manufactured home in its 
possession or a manufactured home with respect to which the sales 
transaction has not been completed, and the distributor or dealer, 
acting as a reasonable distributor or dealer, knows as a result of 
notification by the manufacturer or otherwise that the manufactured home 
contains a failure to conform or imminent safety hazard, the distributor 
or dealer may seek the remedies available to him under Sec. 3282.415.
    (b) When, in accordance with Sec. 3282.415, a manufacturer corrects 
a failure to conform to the applicable standard or an imminent safety 
hazard, the distributor or dealer, acting as a reasonable distributor or 
dealer, may accept the remedies provided by the manufacturer as having 
corrected the failure to conform or imminent safety hazard. The 
distributor or dealer, therefore, may sell, lease, or offer for sale or 
lease any manufactured home so corrected by the manufacturer.
    (c) When a distributor or dealer is authorized by a manufacturer to 
correct a failure to conform to the applicable standard or an imminent 
safety hazard and completes the correction in accordance with the 
manufacturer's instructions, the distributor or dealer may sell, or 
lease or offer for sale or lease the manufactured home in question, 
provided that the distributor or dealer, acting as a reasonable 
distributor or dealer knows that the manufactured home conforms to the 
standards. A distributor or dealer and a manufacturer, at the 
manufacturer's option, may agree in advance that the distributor or 
dealer is authorized to make such corrections as the manufacturer 
believes are within the expertise of the dealer.
    (d) If the corrections made under paragraphs (b) and (c) of this 
section do not bring the manufactured home into conformance or correct 
the imminent safety hazard, the provisions of Sec. 3282.415 will 
continue in effect prior to completion of the sales transaction.
