Section: 14A:14-13: Liens by legal process

(1) Every lien against the property of a corporation shall be void if

(a) such lien is obtained by attachment, judgment, levy or other legal process; and

(b) a receivership action against the corporation is commenced within four months after the date on which such lien was obtained, or if such lien is obtained after the commencement of the receivership action; and

(c) the assets of the corporation are distributed in the receivership action.

(2) The property affected by any such lien shall be discharged from such lien and shall pass to the receiver, but the court may order such lien to be preserved for the benefit of the corporation's creditors. The Superior Court may direct such conveyance of the property affected as may be proper or adequate to evidence title thereto of the receiver. The title of a bona fide purchaser of such property shall be valid, but, if such title is acquired otherwise than by a judicial sale held to enforce such lien, it shall be valid only to the extent of the present consideration paid for such property.
