570. Position of tenants or mortgagor in possession on appointment of receiver.

On a receiver of real or leasehold property being appointed, the tenants are directed to attorn and pay their rents in arrear and becoming due to him1. If it does not appear in what right possession is held, application should be made that the person in possession should attorn, and then he must explain his possession to the court2. If the mortgagor is in possession, prima facie the mortgagee is entitled to an order that the mortgagor deliver up possession of the premises to the receiver
