Section 265: Arrestment of property affected by interim administration order

347.Section 265 enables the Scottish Ministers or the interim administrator to apply to the Court of Session for an order to arrest (or attach) moveable property which is subject to an interim administration order but is in the hands of third parties. An example of this would be a person’s bank account. The warrant of arrestment would enable the bank account and other assets to be frozen thus preventing their being moved or dispersed before a final recovery order was made vesting the property in the hands of the trustee for civil recovery.
