Necessary things for Receivership

If no power to appoint a receiver is given by the terms of issue, the trustee for the debenture holders, or a debenture holder acting on behalf of himself and others, may ask the court to appoint a receiver.  Before such an appointment will be made it will be necessary for the applicant to show that:-

(a)    Default is made in payment of principal or interest
(b)    The company is being wound up, or
(c)    The security is in jeopardy.

An appointment will be made under (c) where there is a serious risk that the security may be seized to satisfy claims which do not rank in priority to those of the debenture holders, e.g., where unsecured creditors obtain a judgement and levy execution; but mere insufficiency of the security is not itself "jeopardy" re (New York Taxicab Co).

A body corporate may not be appointed S.345 (Companies Act 1962), nor an undischarged bankrupt, except under an appointment by the court S.346. The official receiver may be appointed if the company is being wound up by the court S.347.

The duties of a receiver are to get in and realise the assets subject to the charge - he has no power to carry on the business of the company; if such a power is required, as where there is a floating charge on the company's business or undertaking and it is desired to sell the business as a going concern, the receiver (or some other person) may be appointed manager to carry on the business for this purpose: if appointed by the court this will be for a limited period, usually three months.
