Whenever any order issued under the provisions of section 47a-53 or section 47a-55, or under the provisions of any municipal charter or special act or ordinance relating to the abatement of nuisances in tenement houses is not complied with, or not so far complied with as the appropriate authority finds reasonable, within the time allowed, or whenever a landlord has not substantially complied with the provisions of section 47a-7, the authority appointed under the provisions of section 47a-56 may apply to the superior court for the judicial district where the property is situated for an order requiring the owner and any mortgagees or lienors of record to show cause why a receiver of rents, issues and profits should not be appointed and why such receiver should not remove or remedy such condition and obtain a lien in favor of the municipality, having priority with respect to all existing mortgages or liens, to secure payment of the costs incurred by the receiver in removing or remedying such condition.  Such application shall contain:  (1) Proof by affidavit that an order of the proper authority has been issued and served on the owner, mortgagees and lienors;  (2) a statement that a nuisance exists because a landlord has been in substantial noncompliance with the provisions of section 47a-7 or a nuisance exists that constitutes a fire hazard or a serious threat to life, health or safety and that such nuisance continued to exist in such property after the time fixed for the removal thereof in such order, and such statement shall contain a description of the property and the conditions constituting such nuisance;  and (3) a brief description of the nature of the work required to remove or remedy the condition and an estimate as to the cost thereof.
