No park owner shall adopt or enforce unreasonable rules. No park owner may engage in a course of conduct which is unreasonable in light of the criteria set forth in section 327C.01, subdivision 8.
In any action in which the reasonableness of a rule is challenged, any rule which violates any provision of Laws 1982, chapter 526, article 2 or of any other law shall be deemed unreasonable, and the following rules shall be presumed unreasonable unless the park owner proves their reasonableness by clear and convincing evidence:
(a) any rule which prohibits the placing of a "for sale" sign on a resident's home by the resident;
(b) any rule which requires a resident or prospective resident to purchase any particular goods or services from a particular vendor or vendors, including the park owner;
(c) any rule which requires a resident to use the services of a particular dealer or broker in an in park sale; and
(d) any rule requiring that more than one occupant of a home have an ownership interest in that home.
In addition to the rules listed in subdivision 2, a court may declare unreasonable any park rule if the court finds that the rule fails to meet the standard of section 327C.01, subdivision 8. The absence of a rule from the list contained in subdivision 2 is not evidence or proof of the rule's reasonableness.
Subject to section 327C.02, subdivision 2, a park owner may adopt and enforce a reasonable rule that places limits on the maximum number of persons permitted to reside in a manufactured home if the limitation is reasonably related to the size of the home and the number of rooms it contains.
