(a) A person served with notice of an order of the court appointing a temporary manager and of the temporary manager’s name and address shall be liable to pay the temporary manager for any goods or services provided by the temporary manager after the date of the order if the person would have been liable for the goods or services supplied by the respondent or an agent of the respondent.? The temporary manager shall give a receipt for each payment and shall keep a copy of each receipt on file.? The temporary manager shall deposit amounts received in a special account and shall use this account for all disbursements.
(b) The temporary manager may bring an action to enforce the liability created by subsection (a) of this section.? Proof of payment to the temporary manager is as effective in favor of the person making the payment as payment of the amount to the person who, but for this subsection, would have been entitled to receive the sum paid.
(c) A resident may not be discharged, nor may any contract or rights be forfeited or impaired, nor may forfeiture or liability be increased, by reason of an omission to pay a respondent, licensee, or other person a sum paid to the temporary manager. (1993, c. 390, s. 1.)
