The liquidation itself may render a charge over the company's assets void in any of the following circumstances:

If there are not sufficient other assets to pay preferential debts those debts are paid out of property subject to a floating charge in priority to that charge.  It is the duty of the liquidator to ensure that debts are paid in their due order of priority.
