This brand new title is written for all professionals whose work involves property rights in an insolvency context, whether they be lawyers, insolvency practitioners or professionals in the property and banking industries. For insolvency specialists, it explains the relevant property law concepts, authorities and statutes that are relevant to their work. For property professionals, the book explains how property rights are affected by the different insolvency regimes, and is particularly useful for anyone dealing with either landlord or tenant clients in both commercial and residential contexts. For all disciplines, it also provides practical guidance on property-related insolvency matters.

Real property is often the most valuable asset in an insolvency and can raise difficult problems of management and competing interests. This title responds to those problems: as well as dealing comprehensively with tenant insolvency, it also addresses the liability of guarantors and other third parties, what happens if the freeholder or landlord is insolvent, and environmental liabilities in insolvency.

It also details specifically how leases and real property are dealt with in bankruptcy.

Written by a team of experienced property and insolvency barristers at Enterprise Chambers with contributions from specialists at Pinsent Masons LLP and Grant Thornton UK LLP.
