    402-C:54 Foreign Domiciliary Receivers in Other States. –
I. Property Rights and Title: Reciprocal State. The domiciliary liquidator of an insurer domiciled in a reciprocal state shall be vested by operation of law with the title to all of the property, contracts and rights of action, and all of the books, accounts and other records of the insurer located in this state. The date of vesting shall be the date of the filing of the petition, if that date is specified by the domiciliary law for the vesting of property in the domiciliary state; otherwise, the date of vesting shall be the date of entry of the order directing possession to be taken. The domiciliary liquidator shall have the immediate right to recover balances due from agents and to obtain possession of the books, accounts and other records of the insurer located in this state. He also shall have the right to recover the other assets of the insurer located in this state, subject to RSA 402-C:55, II.
II. Property Rights and Title: State Not a Reciprocal State. If a domiciliary liquidator is appointed for an insurer not domiciled in a reciprocal state, the commissioner of this state shall be vested by operation of law with the title to all of the property, contracts and rights of action, and all of the books, accounts and other records of the insurer located in this state, at the same time that the domiciliary liquidator is vested with title in the domicile. The commissioner of this state may petition for a conservation or liquidation order under RSA 402-C:52 or 53, or for an ancillary receivership under RSA 402-C:55, or after approval by the superior court for Merrimack county may transfer title to the domiciliary liquidator, as the interests of justice and the equitable distribution of the assets require.
III. Filing Claims. Claimants residing in this state may file claims with the liquidator or ancillary receiver, if any, in this state or with the domiciliary liquidator, if the domiciliary law permits. The claims must be filed on or before the last date fixed for the filing of claims in the domiciliary liquidation proceedings.
