Sec. § 212
Escheated Lands Subject to Trusts and Incumbrances

Lands escheated to the state shall be held subject to the same trusts and incumbrances to which they would have been subject if they had descended, except that where the owner or beneficiaries of such trusts or the holders of such incumbrances have been made parties to an action brought under section two hundred one, such land shall be subject only to trusts and incumbrances of record in the county in which the land is located prior to the filing of notice of pendency of action authorized under section two hundred one.
