(a)  The water rights appurtenant and the assessment obligation of the lands in said subdivision which are within the irrigation entity have been transferred from said lands or excluded from an irrigation entity by the owner thereof; or by the person, firm or corporation filing the subdivision plat or amendment to a subdivision plat or any other plat or map recognized by the city or county for the division of land; or
(b)  The owner or person, firm or corporation filing the subdivision plat or amendment to a subdivision plat or any other plat or map recognized by the city or county for the division of land has provided for underground tile or other like satisfactory underground conduit for lots of one (1) acre or less, or a suitable system for lots of more than one (1) acre which will deliver water to those landowners within the subdivision who are also within the irrigation entity, with the following appropriate approvals:
(i)   For proposed subdivisions within the incorporated limits of a city, the irrigation system must be approved by the city zoning authority or the city council, as provided by city ordinance, with the advice of the irrigation entity charged with the delivery of water to said lands.
(ii)  For proposed subdivisions located outside incorporated cities but within a negotiated area of city impact pursuant to chapter 65, title 67, Idaho Code, or within one (1) mile outside the incorporated limits of any city, both city and county zoning authorities and city council and county commissions must approve such irrigation system in accordance with section 50-1306, Idaho Code. In addition, the irrigation entity charged with the delivery of water to said lands must be advised regarding the irrigation system.
(iii) For proposed subdivisions located outside an area of city impact in counties with a zoning ordinance, the delivery system must be approved by the appropriate county zoning authority, and the county commission with the advice of the irrigation entity charged with the delivery of water to said lands.

(ii)  That the purchaser of the lot must remain subject to all assessments levied by the irrigation entity; and
(iii) That the individual purchaser shall be responsible to pay such legal assessments; and
(iv)  That the assessments are a lien on the land within the irrigation entity; and
(v)   That the purchaser may at a future date petition the appropriate irrigation entity for exclusion from the irrigation district.
(b)  A disclosure statement executed by the purchasers and duly acknowledged, containing the representations required in this subsection of this section, shall be obtained by the seller at the time of receipt of the earnest money from the purchaser, and affixed to the proposed sales contract and a copy thereof shall be forwarded to the appropriate irrigation entity.
