Court Rules in Favor of Use Blanket Receiver to Collect Rental Income When Investment Owners Fail to Satisfy Financial Obligations to Association. The Miami Herald and Sun-Sentinel both reported that the Third District Court of Appeal denied a challenge to an Order appointing a ‘blanket’ receiver to collect rental income from tenants when the unit’s owner failed to pay assessments. The owner challenging the Order owns several units, most or all of which are in delinquency status. The appellate Court denied a request for a Writ of Prohibition, allowing the Association to continue enforcement of the blanket order requiring rent to be paid to the receiver to satisfy outstanding assessments and other sums due. This ‘mini-receiver’ program has been very successful in South Florida. The Order entered in the Verabella Falls Condominium Association case specifically requires the receiver to collect all rents and monies from tenants due to unit owners when the unit’s owner is subject to a foreclosure action for the failure to pay past due assessments. It also permits the receiver to engage a property manager to offer unoccupied units for lease or rent when the unit’s owner is a defendant in foreclosure proceedings filed by the Association. Seminars will be held throughout the State to explain the success of these programs to community leaders.
