Article Summary: 

The article discusses the concept of a court-appointed administrator in condominium corporations as a last-resort remedy for extreme financial, social, and governance issues. Instead of the elected board of directors, the court appoints a representative to make important decisions on behalf of the corporation. The process of obtaining a court-appointed administrator is not easy, and it is considered a remedy of last resort. The article outlines red flags that may indicate the need for a court-appointed administrator, such as financial problems, governance difficulties, and factionalism. It emphasizes the importance of seeking legal advice and presenting sufficient evidence to support the need for an administrator. The powers and role of the administrator may vary based on the specific circumstances of the case. The article also discusses how to change or stop the administrator and provides insights on how to avoid the need for a court-appointed administrator in the first place, focusing on owner participation, board transparency, timely maintenance decisions, and effective property management.
