Subject to subsection (2) of this section, if a homeowners association fails to fill vacancies on the board of directors sufficient to constitute a quorum in accordance with the bylaws, an owner or a first mortgagee may request the circuit court of the county in which the planned community is located to appoint a receiver to manage the affairs of the association.
At least 45 days before an owner or first mortgagee requests the circuit court to appoint a receiver under subsection (1) of this section, the owner or first mortgagee shall mail, by certified or registered mail, a notice to the association and shall post a copy of the notice at a conspicuous place or places on the property or provide notice by a method otherwise reasonably calculated to inform owners of the proposed action.
The notice shall be signed by the owner or first mortgagee and include:
A description of the intended action.
A statement that the intended action is pursuant to this section.
The date, not less than 30 days after mailing of the notice, by which the association must fill vacancies on the board sufficient to constitute a quorum.
A statement that if the association fails to fill vacancies on the board by the specified date, the owner or first mortgagee may file a petition with the court under subsection (1) of this section.
A statement that if a receiver is appointed, all expenses of the receivership will be common expenses of the association as provided in subsection (4) of this section.
If a receiver is appointed, the salary of the receiver, court costs, attorney fees and all other expenses of the receivership shall be common expenses of the association.
A receiver appointed under this section has all of the powers and duties of a duly constituted board of directors and shall serve until a sufficient number of vacancies on the board are filled to constitute a quorum.
If at a turnover meeting held in accordance with ORS 94.616 (Turnover meeting) the owners fail to elect the number of directors sufficient to constitute a quorum of the board of directors, in addition to the notice requirements specified in subsections (2) and (3) of this section, an owner shall give the notice to all other owners as provided in the bylaws.
Notwithstanding subsections (2) and (3) of this section, in the case of an emergency, the court may waive the notice requirements of subsections (2) and (3) of this section. [2007 c.409 §2; 2017 c.358 §50]
