  473.300.  Continuation of business of decedent. — Upon a showing of advantage to the estate, the court may authorize the executor or administrator to continue any business of the decedent for the benefit of the estate; but if the decedent died testate and his estate is solvent, the order of the court is subject to the provisions of the will.  The order may be with or without notice.  If notice is not given to all interested persons before the order is made, the court shall promptly require the giving of notice to such interested persons as have not been previously notified to the effect that such order has been made and that they will have opportunity to show cause why it should not be set aside or modified.  The order may provide:

  (1)  For the conduct of the business solely by the executor or administrator, or as a corporation to be formed by the executor or administrator, or for the participation as a partner by the executor or administrator in a business in which the decedent was a partner, subject to applicable provisions of law and the agreement of the other person or persons continuing such business as partners;

  (2)  The extent of the liability of the estate, or any part thereof, or of the executor or administrator, for obligations incurred in the continuation of the business;

  (3)  As to whether liabilities incurred in the conduct of the business are to be chargeable solely to the part of the estate set aside for use in the business or to the estate as a whole; and

  (4)  As to the period of time for which the business may be conducted, and such other conditions, restrictions, regulations and requirements as the court orders.
