Frequently asked questions about receivership

  • What is an LPA receiver?

    The appointment of an LPA receiver is a legal method for a mortgage to be paid without the lender taking possession of the property. Once appointed, the receiver acts as agent of the borrower rather than the lender.

  • When is an LPA receiver appointed?

    An LPA receiver may be appointed by a finance lender under a clause in the mortgage or fixed charge or under the Law of Property Act 1925. The borrower must be in default with his/her mortgage or there is a breach of a provision of the mortgage deed. An LPA receiver is more accurately described as a fixed charge receiver.

  • What does an LPA receiver do?

    The primary duty of an LPA receiver is to deal with the property under his/her control, which includes collecting rent and other income from the property and may include its sale. All monies collected must be distributed in a strict order. The LPA receiver owes the borrower a duty of reasonable care in carrying on his/her business and/or disposing of the property.
