LR 1040-1  Appraisal

At the request of any interested party, the clerk will enter an order for appraisal of property so security can be given. If the parties do not agree in writing upon the appraiser, a judge will appoint the appraiser. The appraiser will be sworn to the faithful and impartial discharge of his duties before any federal or state officer authorized by law to administer oaths. The appraiser will give one (1) day's notice of the time and place of making the appraisal to the attorneys who have appeared in the action. The appraiser will file the appraisal with the clerk as soon as it is made.
