Sinclair v Glatt and another (Glatt and others intervening)

Receiver – Appointed by court. The applicant receiver applied for payment of all legal costs and remuneration. The Administrative Court, in allowing the application, held that a contention that the receiver, as trustee, had failed to bring property into the receivership account could not be advanced in an application for a general account, without having also raised an allegation of wilful default, negligence or other breach of duty for which the receiver had been liable to compensate the intervener beneficiaries. Further, a prior order had not acted to prevent the receiver claiming disbursements from gross receipts that he should have provided in the costs proceedings.
