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.
