Title 60. Property
§60-527. Damage or destruction of building - Repair or restoration- Deficiency assessments - Distribution of funds.
Except as hereinafter provided, damage to or destruction of the building shall be promptly repaired and restored by the manager or board of managers, using the proceeds of insurance, if any, on the building for that purpose, and the unit owners shall be liable for assessment for any deficiency except in the case of an unconstructed building which may be insured under a master policy of insurance as described in Section 526 of this title, in which event the declarant shall be liable for any deficiency relating to such unconstructed building. If there is substantially total destruction of the property, or if seventy-five percent (75%) of the unit owners computed on the basis set forth in Section 503 of this title duly resolve not to proceed with repair or restoration, then and in that event the property or so much thereof as shall remain, shall be subject to partition at the suit of any unit owner, in which event the net proceeds of sale, together with the net proceeds of insurance policies, if any, shall be considered as one fund except for the declarant in respect to uncompleted units on which declarant is not making the pro rata contribution described in subsection (a) of Section 512 of this title, said fund shall be divided among all the unit owners in proportion to their respective undivided ownership of the common elements, after first paying off, out of the respective shares of unit owners, to the extent sufficient for that purpose, all liens on the unit of each unit owner. With respect to uncompleted units or uncompleted buildings for which the declarant is not making pro rata contributions pursuant to subsection (b) of Section 512 of this title, the declarant shall not receive its portion of said fund according to its respective undivided ownership in the common elements but shall receive net proceeds of sale according to the formula described in paragraph (j) of Section 514 of this title and such proceeds of insurance, if any, attributable to said uncompleted buildings and/or uncompleted units under a master policy of insurance as permitted in Section 526 of this title. The manager, or board of managers, as the case may be, and their agents and employees shall have an easement to enter units to make repairs to common elements or when the repairs reasonably appear to be necessary for public safety or to prevent damage to property other than the unit.
