§31A-7-6. Borrowing powers of receiver.

With the written consent of the commissioner, any receiver of a financial institution appointed under the provisions of this article may borrow money from and contract for loans with any finance or lending agency of the United States government or any other responsible agency or person for the purpose of furnishing immediate relief to or aiding in the reorganization, liquidation or reopening of such financial institution, protecting and preserving the assets in charge of the receiver, expediting the making of distributions and the payment of dividends to depositors and other creditors of the institution, providing for the expenses of administration and liquidation or its merger or consolidation with another financial institution, and paying the claims of secured creditors where the security is deemed by the receiver and the commissioner to be of a value in excess of the debt so secured and to be for the preservation of the assets of such institution; and to pledge, hypothecate, assign or transfer to any such responsible agency or person any assets or securities belonging to the institution as collateral security for the payment of all such loans, subject to such reasonable terms and conditions imposed by and agreed upon between the parties.

All acts of the receiver or the commissioner under this section are valid, binding and effective to transfer to any such responsible agency or person, and any successors and assigns thereof, assets and securities in accordance with the terms of any such contract of pledge, transfer or assignment.

The commissioner and receiver are not under any circumstances under any personal obligation to repay any such loan and may take any action necessary or convenient to consummate such loan and to provide for the repayment thereof and to give bond, with sufficient corporate surety authorized to do business in this state, the amount of bond to be set by and the surety to be approved by the commissioner, for the faithful performance of all undertakings in connection therewith. The authority herein conferred upon a receiver for the procuring and obtaining of such loans includes the authority to renew them from time to time, with the written consent of the commissioner.

An accurate record of all securities and exact copies of all notes withdrawn from the files of the financial institution to be pledged as collateral for borrowed money under the provisions of this section shall be kept in the files of such institution at all times.
