In Re Vos; Dick v Kendall Freeman: 2006

The deceased had been a name at Lloyds and died insolvent. The court considered the meaning and effect of regulation 12 of the 1986 Order.
Held: The provision meant what it said, with the result that if an Insolvency Administration Order was made at any time, all dispositions since the death of the deceased were prima facie void, even if made before the petition, and no matter how long the intervals between death and the presentation of the petition, and between presentation and order.
