One of the most substantial contributions of the Act is the inclusion of provisions defining the authority of the receiver and the procedure for the sale or transfer of real propertyWith respect to the sale of real property, the Act provides the following authority: Upon court approval, a receiver may sell, lease, license, exchange, or otherwise dispose of receivership property. The sale is free and clear of a lien of the person that obtained the appointment of the receiver, any subordinate lien, and any right of redemption, unless an agreement of sale provides otherwiseSuch a sale would still remain subject to any senior lien. Any lien that is extinguished as a result of a sale attaches to the proceeds of sale with the same validity, perfection and priority the lien had before the sale, even if the proceeds of sale are not sufficient to satisfy the obligations secured by the lien. A sale may be conducted as a private sale. A creditor holding a valid lien on the property may "credit bid" at the sale. Overall, the adoption of the Act will help streamline the receivership process in Michigan, providing clear guidelines for the appointment, authority, and termination of a receiver over real and personal propertyPerhaps, most notably, the Act will provide more certainty as to the validity of a receiver sale of property and should provide title companies with the assurance they need to insure such sales.
