Texas Business Organizations Code
Sec. § 11.403
Appointment of Receiver for Specific Property


Subject to Subsection (b), and on the application of a person whose right to or interest in any property or fund or the proceeds from the property or fund is probable, a court that has jurisdiction over specific property of a domestic or foreign entity may appoint a receiver in an action:


by a vendor to vacate a fraudulent purchase of the property;


by a creditor to subject the property or fund to the creditors claim;


between partners or others jointly owning or interested in the property or fund;


by a mortgagee of the property for the foreclosure of the mortgage and sale of the property, when:


it appears that the mortgaged property is in danger of being lost, removed, or materially injured; or


it appears that the mortgage is in default and that the property is probably insufficient to discharge the mortgage debt; or


in which receivers for specific property have been previously appointed by courts of equity.


A court may appoint a receiver for the property or fund under Subsection (a) only if:


with respect to an action brought under Subsection (a)(1), (2), or (3), it is shown that the property or fund is in danger of being lost, removed, or materially injured;


circumstances exist that are considered by the court to necessitate the appointment of a receiver to conserve the property or fund and avoid damage to interested parties;


all other requirements of law are complied with; and


the court determines that other available legal and equitable remedies are inadequate.


The court appointing a receiver under this section has and shall retain exclusive jurisdiction over the specific property placed in receivership. The court shall determine the rights of the parties in the property or its proceeds.


If the condition necessitating the appointment of a receiver under this section is remedied, the receivership shall be terminated immediately, and the receiver shall redeliver to the domestic entity all of the property remaining in receivership.
