Re Warren: ChD 1932

The Divisional Court in Bankruptcy applied the rule that a judicial act takes effect at the very start of the day on which it occurs to give deemed precedence to a receiving order, a judicial act, over a payment made earlier in the day. The overreaching statutory trusts for sale imposed by the Law of Property Act, 1925, do not normally alter the beneficial rights inter se of the concurrent owners.
