Recovering property from LPA receivers, SW8
We were approached by a client looking for £3.2 million. The client had gotten caught up in interest rate swaps which ultimately resulted in defaults on his mortgage. The client’s mortgage lender sought repayment and appointed a Law of Property Act (LPA) receiver who took full control over the property and his tenant’s rental payments. The client owned a mixed residential-commercial property in south London, valued at £4.85 million. However, the property was an unfinished development. The client was part way through flat conversions of the upper parts and when finished the investment property would be worth £7 million –a potential of over £2 million profit for the client.
