Section 254: Exclusion of property which is not recoverable etc.

324.The court has the power to vary an interim receiving order at any time (section 251(3)). This section makes specific provision for variations of interim receiving orders to have the effect of excluding property from the proceedings altogether. The court may decide before the final trial of the action, for example on an application by an interested person or a report by an interim receiver (see section 255), that some of the property to which the order applies is neither recoverable nor associated property. The court must in that event exclude this property from the terms of the interim receiving order. The court may also release associated property if satisfied that it may be excluded without materially affecting the right of the Director to recover in respect of the remainder. If so, it may vary the order accordingly and the excluded property will be released, with or without conditions.
