Whoever, being the owner, or agent of the owner, of any property located in West Warwick which is or may be subject to a sewer assessment, transfers, sells, or negotiates to sell any land without a written disclosure contained in the purchaser's sales agreement to the effect that all or part of the land has been so previously determined to be subject to a sewer assessment by the town of West Warwick shall be subject to a penalty of one hundred dollars ($100) for each lot or part thereof so transferred, sold, or negotiated for sale without written disclosure.
