Receivership can be intimidating for a business owner/director, especially if you’re not prepared for the process. Likewise, the procedure can be confusing for a novice creditor or an appointed receiver who is not sure of his or her rights and duties. The following information should help you gain a better fundamental understanding of receivership:
What is Corporate Business Receivership?
When a debtor violates the terms of a mortgage or debenture agreement that contains a fixed or floating charge it becomes possible for their company or property to be placed under receivership. During this procedure the creditor can appoint a receiver to assume control of the insolvent company’s assets or property in order to recoup owed debts.
Typically, fixed legal charges are added to loans in order to secure a specific property against the debt, and provide the authority to exercise Law of Property Act (LPA) receivership. In this type of receivership the appointed receiver assesses the situation and determines whether it would be more suitable to sell the property or collect rent in order to recover debts.
Floating charges are used to secure a company’s assets, or a class of their assets, and usually provide the authority to exercise administrative receivership, in which the receiver assumes full control over the insolvent company’s operations. In administrative receivership, the receiver has the right to sell company assets or continue operations as usual.
Creditors, Do You Have a Case for Receivership?
A mortgage lender can only initiate LPA receivership if they’re able to exercise power of sale. Under the LPA there are several circumstances that allow a lender to exercise power of sale:
If any of the above circumstances apply to your situation, you may have the right to initiate the process of receivership as a creditor. If a debtor has defaulted on a mortgage or loan and the debt is not secured by a legal charge, it is important to serve a formal payment request notice as soon as possible to begin the preliminary process required for receivership. As a creditor, you do have a legal right to demand payment and it may take receivership to get the ball rolling.
Debtors, Are You in Danger of Receivership?
As a debtor you could be facing the legitimate possibility of receivership if any of the following is true:
It should be noted that each mortgage deed or loan can contain its own unique provisions that allow for the initiation of receivership. For this reason it is best to review the loan terms with a qualified professional to determine whether you are genuinely at risk of facing receivership.
