Our Court Appointed Real Estate Receivers Are Here to Help
With billions of dollars of assets managed and controlled by our receivers/referees, we have experience in office, industrial, self-storage, single-family, condominium, apartment, parking lots, raw land and equestrian property.
Here’s how our real estate receivers can help you:
A rents, issues and profits (real estate) receivership arises out of the enforcement of a deed of trust/mortgage. A receiver may be appointed to protect, preserve, and secure rents during a foreclosure action. Typically, receiver appointments are completed under the specific performance provision of the deed of trust or assignment of rents clause in the loan documents; however, such a clause is not necessary for the appointment of a receiver.
A receiver may also be appointed to take possession of a property in judicial foreclosure where the property is in danger of being lost, removed, materially injured, or where conditions in the deed of trust or mortgage have not been performed. In addition, a receiver may be appointed in a judicial foreclosure in the event that the property is worth less than the debt it secures.
The most common type of real estate/income property that are subject to the appointment of receiver include but are not limited to:
From duplexes to large apartment communities, our team has managed over 10,000 apartment units throughout the country. Multi-family receivership cases include sub-standard housing, luxury and environmentally compromised properties. With expertise in health & safety related cases, mold, lead paint, bedbugs, roaches and sub-standard conditions are regularly addressed.
From low-rise to mid-rise office properties, including mixed-use, FedReceiver, Inc. has handled office building receiverships with challenging lease-up issues, deferred maintenance and tenant defaults.
Our team has managed single tenant retail all the way to large anchored neighborhood shopping centers. Receivership focus has involved lease-up, CAM reconciliations, deferred maintenance, marketing plans and ADA/health & safety compliance.

The FedReceiver team has been appointed as receiver over medical office buildings, many of which pose unique challenges including maintenance standards, specialized common area requirements, parking, access issues and code compliance.
Our team has experience with small motels to luxury resort properties, including national flagged properties.
Mobile Home/Manufactured Home

Stephen Donell has been appointed as receiver over multiple equestrian properties including training/riding facilities servicing the equestrian community.
Self Storage Facility
Our team has experience in self-storage management in multiple states. Self-storage properties can pose unique challenges with security and safety issues.
Gas Station/Car Wash
FedReceiver, Inc. has assembled a team of experts with experience in managing/operating and selling gas station/carwash/C-Store Properties, with numerous receiverships involving national gas station brands.
Typically, a receiver who is appointed in a rents, issues and profits case is one that has a professional background in the operation of a business/real estate and may include attorneys, CPA’s, property managers and/or other similarly qualified professionals.
The typical life cycle of a real estate receivership varies. A case can last for less than a day and up to a year or longer, depending on many factors. Ordinarily, a real estate case lasts only a few months, pending the completion of a foreclosure action by the lender. If the underlying default is cured or a bankruptcy is filed, these would be qualifying events to terminate the receivership.3
