This chapter discusses the enforcement of security once formal insolvency proceedings have supervened. It deals primarily with liquidation, administration, and receivership but takes in also other procedures, such as schemes of arrangement, to the extent that they affect the rights of secured creditors. A key feature of English law, in contrast with numerous other legal systems, is that the onset of bankruptcy or company liquidation does not remove the power of a secured creditor to exercise proprietary remedies for the recovery of the secured debt. In addition to consensual security, namely, mortgage, charge, and pledge, liens arising by operation of law may be exercised against a liquidator or trustee in bankruptcy, who may not therefore obtain possession of the assets without discharging the underlying obligation.
