Warwick (Formerly Yarwood) v Trustee in Bankruptcy of Clive Graham Yarwood  EWHC 2272 (Ch);  BPIR 1443
In ancillary relief proceedings, H and W agreed to the sale of their home and an enhanced sum to be paid to wife out of the proceeds of sale. The payment was made to W after the presentation of a bankruptcy petition against H. HHJ David Cooke (sitting as a Deputy High Court Judge) held that the distribution of the proceeds of sale was void as being a post¬petition disposition under s 284 of the Insolvency Act 1986, s 284, there having been no pre-petition agreement that could form the basis of a compromise of W’s ancillary relief claim, or could found a claim in constructive trust and/or proprietary estoppel.
