  • § 1535. Report and judgment

    When, upon such hearing, it appears to be for the best interests of a majority of the members of such corporation or society or the persons interested therein, that the same should be dissolved or moved, and that the property should be divided among the owners thereof, or that such property should be sold and the proceeds divided, the commissioners shall so report to the court within 30 days of their determination of the matter. The court shall thereupon render judgment in accordance with the facts found, and that such corporation or society is dissolved, and that the property belonging to it, whether real or personal, shall be divided or sold, and its proceeds divided among the owners thereof, or the persons interested therein, as to the court seems just, and for the petitioners to recover their costs, if defense is made to such petition. If defense is not made, the petitioners shall pay the costs, and the court shall so order.
