2113.16 Termination of powers of special administrator.

Upon granting of letters testamentary or of administration, the power of a special administrator appointed under section 2113.15 of the Revised Code shall terminate and the special administrator shall transfer to the executor or administrator all the assets of the deceased in the possession or under the control of the special administrator. The special administrator shall file an account of the special administration within thirty days of the appointment of the executor or administrator. The account shall be in conformance with section 2109.30 of the Revised Code. The executor or administrator may be admitted to prosecute any suit begun by the special administrator, as an administrator de bonis non is authorized to prosecute a suit commenced by a former executor or administrator.

If the special administrator neglects or refuses to transfer the assets and estate to the executor or administrator, the probate court may compel the transfer by citation and attachment. The executor or administrator also may proceed, by civil action, to recover the value of the assets from the special administrator and the special administrator's sureties.
