16-332. Same; preneed contract provisions. Any cemetery corporation entering into a preneed cemetery merchandise contract shall provide in such contract that:

(a) A purchaser, under a preneed cemetery merchandise contract covered in this act who permanently moves to another state in the United States, may direct that the merchandise, so long as the same is not a part of nor affixed to real estate, be delivered to a cemetery in the state of the purchaser's residence, except that the purchaser may be required to pay the additional transportation costs which exceed those the cemetery would have incurred to provide and deliver the merchandise to the seller cemetery; or

(b) a purchaser who has entered into a preneed cemetery merchandise contract covered by this act may, upon the purchaser permanently changing residence to a place more than 150 miles from the cemetery, cancel the contract upon written notice to the cemetery, which notice shall then be forwarded by the cemetery to the trustee of the cemetery merchandise trust fund. Upon receipt of such notice, the preneed cemetery merchandise contract shall be cancelled, and the trustee, after deducting that contract's share of applicable costs and taxes provided for in K.S.A. 16-322, and amendments thereto, shall pay to the purchaser not less than 85% of the funds held in trust for the contract pursuant to this act. The balance shall be paid to the cemetery corporation and the trustee shall be discharged from further obligation as to such contract.
