    • Understand what an ‘insolvency situation’ is
    • Be able to identify the different types of insolvency - liquidation, administration, bankruptcy
    • Be aware of the ‘pre-pack’ controversy - the debate and latest proposals

    • Be able to identify transactions liable to be set aside
    • Be able to demonstrate an awareness of Land Registry requirements
    • Be able to confidently advise clients – ‘Is it a pig in a poke?’
    • Appreciate the conflict between the insolvency regime and the land registration regime


This course, delivered by experienced property practitioner and lecturer Hannah Mackinlay, will provide a practical discussion of the different forms of insolvency that property lawyers are likely to come across and will examine the effect which this has on conveyancing practice as a whole.

In addition, Hannah will also discuss the following questions to ensure that viewers are able to answer them with confidence:

  • Your client wants to buy a property where the seller is insolvent, what do you tell them?
  • Is it safe to proceed where a liquidator or administrator is selling?
  • What are the different types of insolvency?
  • Will you get it registered at Land Registry or could it be set aside?

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
