2005 Connecticut Code - Sec. 19a-546. (Formerly Sec. 19-621f). Authority of receiver concerning leases, mortgages, secured transactions.

      Sec. 19a-546. (Formerly Sec. 19-621f). Authority of receiver concerning leases, mortgages, secured transactions. (a) A receiver may not be required to honor any lease, mortgage, secured transaction or other contract entered into by the owner of the facility if, upon application to the Superior Court, said court determines that: (1) The person seeking payment under the agreement was an owner or controlling stockholder of the facility or was an affiliate of such owner or controlling stockholder at the time the agreement was made; or (2) the rental, price or rate of interest required to be paid under the agreement was substantially in excess of a reasonable rental, price or rate of interest at the time the contract was entered into.

      (b) If the receiver is in possession of real estate or goods subject to a lease, mortgage or security interest which the receiver is permitted to avoid under subsection (a) and if the real estate or goods are necessary for the continued operation of the facility under this section, the receiver may apply to the court to set a reasonable rental, price or rate of interest to be paid by the receiver during the duration of the receivership. The court shall hold a hearing not later than fifteen days after application is made. Any known owners of the property involved shall receive notice of such application from the receiver at least ten days prior to the hearing. Payment by the receiver of the amount determined by the court to be reasonable is a defense to any action against the receiver for payment or for possession of the goods or real estate subject to the lease, security interest or mortgage involved by any person who received such notice, but the payment does not relieve the owner of the facility of any liability for the difference between the amount paid by the receiver and the amount due under such lease, security interest or mortgage involved.

      (c) The provisions of this section shall not apply to a lease, mortgage, secured transaction or other contract entered into with any financial institution regulated by a state or federal agency.

      (P.A. 78-227, S. 6, 10.)

      History: Sec. 19-621f transferred to Sec. 19a-546 in 1983.
