Chapter 515

< > Effective - 28 Aug 2016 bottom

  515.550.  Estate property, turnover of upon demand — court action to compel. — 1.  Upon demand by a receiver, any person, including the debtor, shall turn over any estate property that is within the possession or control of that person unless otherwise ordered by the court for good cause shown.  A receiver by motion may seek to compel turnover of estate property as against any person over which the court first establishes jurisdiction, unless there exists a bona fide dispute with respect to the existence or nature of the receiver's possessory interest in the estate property, in which case turnover shall be sought by means of a legal action.  In the absence of a bona fide dispute with respect to the receiver's right to possession of estate property, the failure to relinquish possession and control to the receiver shall be punishable as a contempt of the court.

  2.  Should the court after notice and a hearing pursuant to subsection 1 of this section order the turnover of property to the receiver, the party against which such order is made shall have the right to deliver a bond executed by such party as principal together with one or more sufficient sureties providing that the principal and each such surety shall each be bound to the receiver in double the amount of the value of the property to be turned over, should the property not be turned over to the receiver when such order becomes final.  Absent such bond, the property ordered to be turned over to the receiver shall be immediately turned over to the receiver within ten days of the entry of such order.
