Hall and another v Elia and another

Bankruptcy – Claim. The Chancery Division dismissed an application for permission to appeal against a Registrar's decision allowing a claim brought by the first respondent trustee in bankruptcy, alleging that a deed of assignment, purporting to assign the second applicant bankrupt's interest in his property to first applicant, his mother, was a sham or that it should be set aside, pursuant to ss 339, 340 and 423 of the Insolvency Act 1986. The court considered the effect the first applicant being debarred from defending the claim after she had failed to comply with various conditions and her application for relief from sanctions had been dismissed.
