After the appointment of a receiver, upon the receiver's petition and after notice, the court may order all or part of the property, including the rights of the absentee in land, to be sold at public or private sale to supply money for payments authorized by sections 578.02 to 578.21, to preserve value, or for reinvestment approved by the court.

Subd. 2.Absentee business.

The court may make orders for the management of an absentee's business in possession of the receiver.

Upon the receiver's petition and after notice, the court may authorize the sale of the business to supply money for payments authorized by sections 578.02 to 578.21, to preserve value, or for reinvestment approved by the court.
