(5) Nothing in subsection (1) of this section shall prevent a landlord from relocating a floating home to another comparable space in the same marina, or in another marina owned by the same owner in the same city, if the landlord desires or is required to make repairs, to remodel or to modify the tenantís original space.

(6) This section does not limit a landlordís right to terminate a tenancy for nonpayment of rent under ORS 90.394 or for other cause under ORS 90.380 (5)(b), 90.396, 90.398 or 90.632 by complying with ORS 105.105 to 105.168.
