PROPERTY TRANSFERRED BEFORE BANKRUPTCY

(a) Voluntary settlements:
The trustee can claim all property settled by the bankrupt on other persons within two years preceding the bankruptcy

(b) Agreements to settle property:
The trustee is not bound by such an agreement if it remains executory. If property has already been settled, the trustee can recover it

(c) Fraudulent preferences:
The trustee can set aside any transaction effected within the six months preceding the presentation of the petition in circumstances such as to make it a fraudulent preference, i.e., a voluntary transaction by an insolvent person in favour of a creditor, or his trustee, with the dominant intention of giving the creditor or a surety, a preference over the other creditors.

(d) Fraudulent conveyances:
The trustee may set aside a transfer of property made by the bankrupt before the commencement of bankruptcy with the intention of defrauding creditors, unless the transferee took the property for good or valuable consideration, in good faith and without notice of that intent.

The trustee cannot recover property in any of the above cases which has been further transferred to a person taking in good faith and for value.
