Art. 328.  Power of administration of property under seizure

The sheriff has the power of administration of all property under seizure, regardless of the type of writ or mandate under authority of which the property was seized.

If immovable property is not occupied by an owner and is not under lease, the sheriff may lease it for a term not beyond the date of judicial sale.  He cannot lease movable property under seizure unless authorized by the court with the consent of the parties.

The sheriff may, and if the necessary funds therefor are advanced or satisfactory security is furnished him by any interested person shall, continue the operation of any property under seizure, including a business, farm, or plantation.  For such purposes, the sheriff may employ a manager and such other employees as he may consider necessary.
