(A) Without prejudice to the generality of the powers conferred by section 1161.68 of the Revised Code, a savings bank may invest in real estate and interests therein as the board of directors considers necessary or convenient for the transaction of the business of the savings bank, including the ownership of stock of a wholly owned subsidiary corporation having as its exclusive authority the ownership and management of the property or interests. The total amount so invested shall not exceed the amount of the savings bank's net worth at the time the investment is made. A savings bank may invest in real estate in excess of the amount prescribed in this division with the written approval of the superintendent of savings banks.

(B) A savings bank may own or hold any real estate that it acquires by foreclosure, conveyance in lieu of foreclosure, or other legal proceedings in relation to loan security interests for a period not in excess of five years, but the superintendent, upon application of a savings bank, may grant to it in writing the power to hold the real estate for a longer period. Real estate sold on contract, but with title remaining in the name of the savings bank, shall not be deemed real estate for the purpose of this division.
