Lewis and Another v Metropolitan Property Realizations Ltd: ChD 21 Nov 2008

Nothing in the 2003 changes to the 1986 Act operated so that a trustee in bankruptcy who sold an interest of the bankrupt for a deferred payment had not realised the interest. Accordingly, on the bankrupt’s release, that interest had been assigned out of the bankrupt’s estate and did not revert to him.
