Mortgages & Receivers

Toby is regularly involved in cases relating to mortgages and receivers. He appeared for the successful claimant in one of the leading cases relating to the duties of receivers, Medfordth v. Blake & Others [2000] Ch 86, which established (contrary to the view of the Privy Council in Downsview Nominees v. First City Corp Ltd) that Law of Property Act receivers and mangers, and those appointed under agricultural mortgages, owed a duty to the mortgagor and anyone with an interest in the equity of redemption to manage the property with due diligence. Toby has also lectured a number of times on topics connected with mortgages and receivership.
