(i)the officer is satisfied that the claim is valid and neither the debtor nor any other person in possession of the article disputes the claim; or
(ii)the sheriff, on an application by the third party, makes an order stating that the sheriff is so satisfied,
the attachment of that article is to cease to have effect.
(2)The making of an application to the sheriff for the purposes of subsection (1)(b)(ii) above does not preclude the third party making the application from taking any other proceedings for the recovery of an article which is owned by the third party.
