Any person interested in property disclaimed may apply to the court for an order vesting the property in himself; but the court will not make a vesting order in respect of a lease unless the lease is taken subject to the same liabilities and obligations as bound the bankrupt.

Any person injured by the disclaimer may prove in the bankruptcy to the extent of his loss.
