A. If the hearing officer or court, as a matter of law, finds:
1. That a rental agreement or any provision thereof was unconscionable when made, the hearing officer or court may refuse to enforce the agreement, enforce the remainder of the agreement without the unconscionable provision, or limit the application of any unconscionable provision to avoid an unconscionable result.
2. That a settlement in which a party waives or agrees to forego a claim or right under this chapter or under a rental agreement was unconscionable at the time it was made, the hearing officer or court may refuse to enforce the settlement, enforce the remainder of the settlement without the unconscionable provision, or limit the application of any unconscionable provision to avoid any unconscionable result.
B. If unconscionability is put into issue by a party or by the hearing officer or court upon his or its own motion the parties shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity to present evidence as to the setting, purpose and effect of the rental agreement or settlement to aid the hearing officer or court in making the determination.
