2A:42-123 Appointment of receiver, other relief.
10. a. If the court determines, after its summary hearing, that the grounds for relief set forth pursuant to section 5 of Phamplet Law 2003, Chapter 295 (C. 2A:42-118) have been established, the court may appoint a receiver and grant such other relief as may be determined to be necessary and appropriate. The court shall select as the receiver the mortgageholder, lienholder or a qualified entity, as defined pursuant to section 3 of Phamplet Law 2003, Chapter 295 (C. 2A:42-116). If the court cannot identify a receiver, the court may appoint any party who, in the judgment of the court, may not have registered with the department pursuant to section 31 of Phamplet Law 2003, Chapter 295 (C. 2A:42-142), but otherwise fulfills the qualifications of a qualified entity.
b. If the court determines, after its summary hearing, that the grounds for relief set forth pursuant to section 5 of Phamplet Law 2003, Chapter 295 (C. 2A:42-118) have been established, but the owner presents a plan in writing to the court demonstrating that the conditions leading to the filing of the complaint will be abated within a reasonable period, which plan is found by the court to be reasonable, then the court may enter an order providing that in the event the conditions are not abated by a specific date, including the completion of specific remedial activities by specific dates, or if the conditions recur within a specific period established by the court, then an order granting the relief as requested in the complaint shall be granted.
The court may require the owner to post a bond in such amount that the court, in consultation with the party bringing the complaint and the public officer, determines to be reasonable, which shall be forfeit if the owner fails to meet the conditions of the order.
C. Any sums advanced or incurred by a mortgage holder or lienholder acting as receiver pursuant to this section for the purpose of making improvements to the property, including court costs and reasonable attorneys fees, may be added to the unpaid balance due said mortgage holder or lienholder subject to interest at the same rate set forth in the note or security agreement.
d. Nothing in this section shall be deemed to relieve the owner of the building of any obligation the owner or any other person may have for the payment of taxes or other municipal liens and charges, or mortgages or liens to any party, whether those taxes, charges or liens are incurred before or after the appointment of the receiver.
e. The appointment of a receiver shall not suspend any obligation the owner may have as of the date of the appointment of the receiver for payment of any operating or maintenance expense associated with the building, whether or not billed at the time of appointment. Any such expenses incurred after the appointment of the receiver shall be the responsibility of the receiver.
