(1) Each mobile home park owner shall pay to the division, on or before October 1 of each year, an annual fee of $4 for each mobile home lot within a mobile home park which he or she owns. If the fee is not paid by December 31, the mobile home park owner shall be assessed a penalty of 10 percent of the amount due, and he or she shall not have standing to maintain or defend any action in the courts of this state until the amount due, plus any penalty, is paid.
(2) There is levied on each annual fee imposed under subsection (1) a surcharge in the amount of $1. The surcharge shall be collected in the same manner as the annual fee and shall be deposited in the Florida Mobile Home Relocation Trust Fund. Collection of the surcharge shall begin during the first calendar year after this subsection takes effect. This surcharge may not be imposed during the next calendar year if the balance in the trust fund exceeds $10 million on June 30. The surcharge shall be reinstated in the next calendar year if the balance in the trust fund is below $6 million on June 30. The surcharge imposed by this subsection may not be imposed as a separate charge regardless of any disclosure in the prospectus.
