The High Court and the Family Court have a general power to grant an injunction (interlocutory or final) to appoint a receiver, where it is ‘just and convenient to do so’, and any such order may be made either unconditionally or on such terms or conditions as the court thinks fit (per section 37 of the Senior Courts Act 1981 which applies to the Family Court as it applies to the High Court).
