3B:14-27. When payment or delivery may not be made

Filing proof of domiciliary foreign fiduciarys authorityIf letters have not issued in this State or an action therefor is not pending in this State, a domiciliary foreign fiduciary or any other person may file in the office of the Clerk of the Superior Court, or if the decedent, ward, or trust has an interest in real estate in any county of this State, then either in that office or in the office of the surrogate of that county, authenticated copies of the letters of appointment of the fiduciary and of any official bond he has given.

Exercise of powers by domiciliary foreign fiduciary; security for costsUpon compliance with N.J.S. 3B:14-28, a domiciliary foreign fiduciary may exercise as to assets in this State all powers he would have had if he had received letters or been appointed in this State, including the power to release and discharge real or personal estate from a mortgage, judgment or other lien or encumbrance held by his decedent, ward or trust. Whether N.J.S. 3B:14-28 is complied with prior to, pending, or subsequent to the action, a domiciliary foreign fiduciary may maintain, or be made a party defendant or otherwise, to any action in any court of this State as if letters had been granted to him in this State, subject to any conditions generally imposed upon nonresident parties.

L.1981, c. 405, s. 3B:14-29, eff. May 1, 1982.3B:14-30. Termination of domiciliary foreign fiduciarys powers; protection of third persons; exercise of powers binding on local fiduciary
The power of a domiciliary foreign fiduciary under N.J.S. 3B:14-28 or N.J.S. 3B:14-29 shall be exercised only if letters have not been issued or an action therefor is not pending in this State. The issuance of local letters or an action therefor terminates the power of the domiciliary foreign fiduciary to act under N.J.S. 3B:14-29, but a court in this State may allow the domiciliary foreign fiduciary to exercise limited powers to preserve the estate. No person who, before receiving actual notice of local letters or an action therefor, has changed his position in reliance upon the powers of the domiciliary foreign fiduciary, shall be prejudiced by reason of the action for, or issuance of, local letters. The local fiduciary is subject to all duties and obligations which have accrued by virtue of the exercise of the powers by the domiciliary foreign fiduciary and may be substituted for him in any action in this State.
