40:56-29. Incidental damages; award tendered; payment into court in certain cases
When the owners of any property have been or shall have been awarded damages as incidental to any improvement, as distinguished from damages for land taken, under this subtitle, and such award has been or shall have been duly confirmed, the amount thereof shall be tendered to the person or persons entitled thereto. If there is uncertainty as to the person entitled to receive the award or if the party entitled to receive the amount awarded shall refuse upon tender thereof to receive the same, or shall be out of the State or under any legal disability, or if several parties interested in the fund shall not agree as to the distribution thereof, or the lands damaged are encumbered by any mortgage, judgment or other lien, or if for any other reason the municipality cannot safely pay the amount awarded to any person, in all such cases the amount awarded may, with leave of the Superior Court, be paid into said court, and shall there be distributed according to law, on the application of any person interested therein.
