Sleight (as trustee of the estate of Jillian Paula Mascall deceased) v Crown Estate Commissioners

Bankruptcy – Trustee in bankruptcy. The applicant trustee in bankruptcy's application for an order that two properties, and surpluses from their sale, be vested in him pursuant to s 320 of the Insolvency Act 1986. The Chancery Division held that the applicant lacked standing to apply for a vesting order. Further, in the circumstances, it would not be realistic to assume that the court would make a vesting order in favour of any applicant under the Act in relation to the properties themselves.
