Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Condominium Property Act. Provides legislative findings concerning the importance of municipalities reclaiming housing stock that was used in fraudulent schemes. Provides procedures for addressing distressed condominium property that is a danger, blight, or nuisance to the surrounding community or the public and that is substantially unoccupied, without utilities, or in a serious negative condition. Provides definitions of "distressed condominium property", "owner", and "other party in interest". Provides that a municipality may file a petition in the circuit court and that if the court finds that a property is a distressed condominium property, the court may appoint a receiver to manage the property. Provides also that if a court finds that the property is not viable as a condominium, the court may deem that the entire property is owned in common by the unit owners and may authorize the receiver to sell the entire property without the consent of the unit owners. Provides that if the receiver sells the property pursuant to court authorization, the sale proceeds shall be paid to unit owners according to their respective shares, after sale expenses, taxes, and liens have been paid. Provides that the receiver has the power and authority to secure and insure the premises, make repairs, and otherwise manage the premises. Provides that other parties in interest shall be provided written notice and a copy of the petition or complaint either by United States certified mail, return receipt requested, within 30 days of the issuance of the summons or by personal service of the complaint. Provides that the court may authorize a receiver to enter into a sales contract for the property upon a motion, with notice to all owners and other parties in interest and those parties having an opportunity to be heard. Makes other changes.
