Maine Revised Statutes

§8-102. Warrant

The court may thereupon issue a warrant, directed to the public administrator in the county where the property or some of it is situated, which may run throughout the State, commanding him to take possession of the property named in said schedule and make return of said warrant as soon as may be with his doings thereon with a schedule of the property so taken. The public administrator shall cause so much of the warrant as relates to land to be recorded in the registry of deeds for the county where the land is located. He shall receive such fees for serving the warrant as the court allows, but not more than those established by law for similar service upon a writ of attachment. Fees and the costs of publishing and serving the notice shall be paid by the petitioner. If a receiver is appointed, said fees shall be repaid by the receiver to the petitioner and allowed the receiver in his account. [1979, c. 540, §1 (NEW).]
