What is a Fixed Charge Receivership?

Originally a creation of the Law of Property Act 1925 (s101), the powers afforded to a Law of Property Act (“LPA”) Receiver are limited by modern standards and an appointment is usually made under the lender’s fixed charge (mortgage) as well as under the powers afforded by 1925 Act.

In addition to a formal LPA process there are other exit routes available to secured lenders where we can advise and assist:

  • Assisted Voluntary Sales
  • Mortgagee in Possession
  • Mortgagee not in Possession
  • Assistance to Lenders seeking possession.

A Receiver acts as agent for the mortgagor (borrower) and whilst the principal obligations are to the mortgagee (lender), the Receiver has a duty of care to the borrower for proper conduct and to obtain best price at the point of sale.

We are fully aware of the FCA requirement surrounding the fair treatment of customers (TCF) and work with our secured lender clients in adhering to this requirement in each property recovery assignment.

Our lease advisory service is led by James Ratcliffe and Tom Snook who provide impartial advice to both occupiers of commercial property and insolvency practitioners. 

We provide lease advisory advice to include negotiating with landlords to restructure expensive leases and assist Insolvency Practitioners with negotiations when companies are facing insolvency. 

Our team actively seeks to maximise the value of such opportunities through strategic advice, thorough financial appraisal of options and negotiation on new lease terms.

Through our affiliation with Hilco we offer valuation and sales advice across a wide range of asset types and on a nationwide basis. The alliance with Hilco Valuation Services will allow us to increase the scope of our advice to a range of clients.

Our team provides a central management service ensuring one point of contact for all management requirements, regardless of the diversity of locations of the portfolio.

We have experience of dealing with bankrupt estates consisting of multiple properties and the management of portfolios in order to minimise risk and maximise return on the sale of the assets. Reviewing the portfolio can help identify any refurbishment opportunities that may add value and help it achieve a greater rental yield. We also understand the required maintenance of a portfolio of properties through to facilitating the disposal.

We are experts in corporate recovery and work closely with Insolvency Practitioners, businesses, their lenders and advisers. We provide a full range of services from securing the site and assets, appraisal and valuation of the property and assets, through to the marketing and sale of the property and business & machinery assets to maximise realisations.
