Effect of bankruptcy

A D of A made for the benefit of creditors generally will be an act of bankruptcy and therefore a bankruptcy petition may be presented against the debtor within 3 months of its execution by a creditor who has not assented to the D of A (but if such creditor has been served by the trustee under the D of A with a notice of the execution of the D of A the time is reduced to 1 month).  The trustee should therefore not act under the D of A for 3 months after its execution unless all creditors have assented to it because if the debtor becomes bankrupt the D of A will be void and the doctrine of relation back will apply, the trustee having to account to the trustee in bankruptcy for all dealings with the debtor's property; however all expenses properly incurred by the trustee of the D of A in the performance of his duties must be paid to him by the trustee in bankruptcy as a first charge on the estate.
