HB 6285 Amends the Mobile Home Landlord and Tenant Rights Act. If a fine is imposed on a tenant/homeowner, the following applies for 45 days after written notice of the fine is delivered to the tenant: (1) non-payment of a fine shall not be grounds for refusal to accept a rent payment; and (2) the fine shall not be deducted from a rent payment. Acceptance of a rent payment shall not be construed as a waiver of an unpaid fine. This will now be know as Public Act 99-0731.

Sec. 22. Remedies, Park Owner. A park owner may, any time rent is overdue, notify the tenant in writing that unless payment is made within the time specified in the notice, not less than 5 days after receipt thereof, the lease will be terminated. If the tenant remains in default, the park owner may institute legal action for recovery of possession, rent due and any damages.
If the tenant breaches any provision of the lease or rules and regulations of the mobile home park, the park owner shall notify the tenant in writing of his breach. Such notice shall specify the violation and advise the tenant that if the violation shall continue for more than 24 hours after receipt of such notice the park owner may terminate the lease.
