A supplier or an affiliate of a supplier who has an option to purchase, or an option to lease or extend the lease of a facility occupied by a dealer, who determines not to exercise the option, shall offer to assign or otherwise transfer the option to the dealer. The supplier may charge the dealer a reasonable legal and administrative cost for transfer of the option. Options to purchase, or lease or extend the lease of a facility created after May 6, 2000, are assignable to the dealer who occupies the facility. If the dealer exercises the option, the supplier or affiliate is not liable for the performance of the dealer pursuant to the option or the underlying lease after the option is exercised.
