Smith-Evans v Smailes: ChD 29 Jul 2013

Appeal against a bankruptcy order made against the claimant. She said that an individual voluntary arrangement which had, at least ostensibly, been in place since the middle of 2008, down to the events leading to the bankruptcy petition, was a nullity. Therefore, the bankruptcy order should not have been made, as the ground for the bankruptcy order was breach of the provisions of the IVA.
