Property insolvency

Property insolvency overview

We have an established reputation in both property and insolvency, and a number of our barristers advise on the complex issues that arise where an insolvency takes place in a property context.

We regularly act for landlords and tenants, insolvency practitioners, banks, LPA receivers and others on all aspects of property related insolvency including the impact of CVAs, void and voidable transactions under the Insolvency Act 1986,  forfeiture and possession proceedings, disclaimer (leasehold and freehold), co-ownership and TOLATA claims, land registration and conveyancing issues and the use of equitable doctrines such as subrogation and the equity of exoneration.

We have expertise in the recovery of property assets in the context of breach of directors’ duties as well as company dissolution and disclaimer by the Crown.
