PART 3 - OF SPECIAL PROCEEDINGS OF A CIVIL NATURE
TITLE 7 - EMINENT DOMAIN LAW
CHAPTER 6 - Deposit and Withdrawal of Probable Compensation; Possession Prior to Judgment
ARTICLE 2 - Withdrawal of Deposit
(a) No withdrawal may be ordered until 20 days after service on the plaintiff of a copy of the application or until the time for all objections has expired, whichever is later.
(b) Within the 20-day period, the plaintiff may file objections to withdrawal on any one or more of the following grounds:
(1) Other parties to the proceeding are known or believed to have interests in the property.
(2) An undertaking should be filed by the applicant as provided in Section 1255.240 or 1255.250.
(3) The amount of an undertaking filed by the applicant under this chapter or the sureties thereon are insufficient.
(c) If an objection is filed on the ground that other parties are known or believed to have interests in the property, the plaintiff shall serve or attempt to serve on such other parties a notice that they may appear within 10 days after such service and object to the withdrawal. The notice shall advise such parties that their failure to object will result in waiver of any rights against the plaintiff to the extent of the amount withdrawn. The notice shall be served in the manner provided in Section 1255.450 for service of an order for possession. The plaintiff shall file, and serve on the applicant, a report setting forth (1) the names of the parties upon whom the notice was served and the dates of service and (2) the names and last known addresses of the other parties who are known or believed to have interests in the property but who were not so served. The applicant may serve parties whom the plaintiff has been unable to serve. Parties served in the manner provided in Section 1255.450 shall have no claim against the plaintiff for compensation to the extent of the amount withdrawn by all applicants. The plaintiff shall remain liable to parties having an interest of record who are not so served but, if such liability is enforced, the plaintiff shall be subrogated to the rights of such parties under Section 1255.280.
(d) If any party objects to the withdrawal, or if the plaintiff so requests, the court shall determine, upon hearing, the amounts to be withdrawn, if any, and by whom.
