Process of condo association taking possession of condo after condo owner fails to pay assessments is a powerful remedy but is under firm statutory control. Court must confine its inquiry to issue of possession, in hearing on motion to vacate judgment of possession. Issues of condo association's duties as to lease and property manager's negligence are not germane to possession and cannot be considered in limited context of forcible entry and detainer action.(HARRIS and SIMON, concurring.)
