(a) Applicability of Local Rule
This rule applies to any motion to approve the sale of assets, outside the ordinary course of business, under 11 U.S.C. §363 (the “Motion to Sell”). This rule, and S.D.Ind. B-6004-2 through B-6004-4, do not apply to sales proposed as part of a Chapter 11 or 12 plan.
(b) Employment and Compensation of Professionals
Unless S.D. Ind. B-2014-2 applies, the movant shall file a separate application to employ, and a separate application to compensate, any broker, auctioneer, or other professional to be retained to assist with any sale. The retention of liquidators, auctioneers, and appraisers is also governed by S.D.Ind. B-6005-1. No payment shall be made to any professional before the Court has entered an order approving compensation and reimbursement of expenses.
(c) Sale of Co-Owned Property
A party proposing to sell co-owned property shall satisfy the requirements of S.D.Ind. B-7001-2.
(d) Procedure; Contents of Motion; Notice
A Motion to Sell shall comply with S.D.Ind. B-6004-2 through B-6004-4, depending on the type of sale, unless the Court orders otherwise.
