In recent times the LPA receiver (or fixed charge receiver) has been recognised as an economical and efficient method of enforcement for secure lender defaulting creditors. But the appointment, for which there is no need to be a licensed insolvency practitioner, is much underused by those advising lenders.

Law of Property Act Receiverships: Law and Practice has become the first port of call for any practitioner who needs to know about the powers and duties of this important office. This new edition has been fully updated to cover all recent cases and practice developments.

From appointment to vacation of office, this title benefits from the author’s unparalleled knowledge and experience acting over many years for LPA receivers and lenders instructing them. Whether a surveyor, insolvency practitioner, lawyer or lender, you will find the answer to your queries in Law of Property Act Receiverships: Law and Practice.

This hands-on and practical work has been fully updated and covers topics as:

  • The VAT status of LPA receivers
  • Restrictions and responsibilities in respect of buy-to-lets and other residential premises
  • Dealing with stock-in-trade and other chattels
  • What are the LPA receivers’ responsibilities to the borrower’s staff?
  • Selling the property: what are the duties to the borrower?
  • The increasing prevalence of human rights arguments
Whether surveyor, insolvency practitioner, lawyer or lender, you will find the answer to your queries in Law of Property Act Receivers: Law and Practice.
