Alabama Code § 35-15-30 Removal of guest from RV park
Current through the 2022 Regular Session.
(a) As used in this section, the term recreational vehicle park means a place set aside and offered by a person, for direct or indirect remuneration of the owner, lessor, or operator of the place, for the parking, accommodation, or rental of five or more recreational vehicles or tents. The term includes buildings and sites set aside for group camping and similar recreational facilities.
(b) The operator of a recreational vehicle park may request a guest of the park who, while on the premises of the park, illegally possesses or deals in a controlled substance, as defined in Section 20-2-2; who disturbs the peace and comfort of other persons; or who causes damage to the park, to leave the park.
(c) The operator of a recreational vehicle park may notify a guest who commits any of the acts in subsection (b) that the park no longer desires to entertain the guest and may request the guest immediately depart from the park. The notice shall be given in writing. If the guest has paid in advance, the park operator, at the time the notice is given, shall tender to the guest the unused portion of the advance payment. Any guest who remains or attempts to remain in the park after being requested to leave pursuant to this subsection is guilty of a Class B misdemeanor.
(d) In the event any guest is unlawfully on or about the premises of a recreational vehicle park as provided in subsection (c), the operator may call to his or her assistance any policeman, constable, deputy sheriff, sheriff, or other law enforcement officer, and it shall be the duty of the law enforcement officer, upon request of the operator of the recreational vehicle park, to immediately remove or eject the guest, using force if necessary.
(e) The operator of the park shall employ all reasonable and proper means to care for any personal property left on the premises by a guest who has been removed as a result of this section and refund any unused portion of monies paid by the guest for the occupancy of the premises.
