Disclaimer of property and vesting orders

Webinar Recording - Available 3rd April

Duration of talk - approximately 45 minutes



Presented by David Sawtell, 39 Essex Chambers

Topics covered

- The definition of ‘onerous property’

- How disclaimer operates

- The effect of disclaimer on guarantors, mortgage companies and


- Who is entitled to apply for a vesting order

- Timing and procedure


The insolvency of a freeholder or landlord can have a knock-on effect on a number of other parties with an interest in its property. The trustee in bankruptcy or a liquidator might well be faced with property in the insolvent estate that they consider to be unsaleable or which gives rise to liabilities in excess of its actual value. In these circumstances, the insolvency practitioner might well disclaim the property, with a consequential impact on leasehold properties (including subleases), guarantors and mortgage companies.


This webinar will outline the circumstances in which disclaimer is an option for the insolvency practitioner, how it operates and how it affects third parties. It will then go on to consider who is entitled to vesting orders, including the applicable procedure and time limits.


The webinar will be of interest to real estate litigators and also to insolvency litigators.
