Receiverships have become increasingly popular tools for developing and implementing cost-effective and expeditious workout strategies for troubled loans. Washington’s Receivership Act, one of the best in the country, can be an effective tool for lenders.
A state court receiver is an independent officer appointed by the court to manage or liquidate the assets of a borrower for the benefit of its creditors. In most cases, a secured lender selects the receiver before the appointment. Banks frequently decide to use a receiver to take over the borrower’s assets if workout negotiations are unsuccessful or if the property might be subject to neglect, ineffective management, vandalism or unusual liability concerns.
