(a) The receiver and any professional retained by the receiver shall be paid by the receiver from the receivership property in the same manner as other expenses of administration and without separate orders, but subject to the procedures, safeguards, and reporting that the court may order.
(b) Except to the extent fees and expenses have been approved by the court, or as to parties in interest who are deemed to have waived the right to object, any interim payments of fees and expenses to the receiver are subject to approval in connection with the receiver's final report pursuant to section 576.38.
