Bronte, referring back to house sold for 60% of value thread which for some reason is now closed, I refer you to the High Court Decision of the 2/10/2015 in the case of Paul McPhilips V ACC loan Managment Ltd and Grant Thornton ( 2015 )IEHC 591 where Justice Gregan ruled that the receivers in the case, Stephen Tennant and Paul McCleary were found to be invalidly appointed subject to mortgage deed and indeed found that Paul McPhilips can sue for damages for trespass on his property. I note that this case was taken in lay litigant albeit with the support of Ben Gilroy. I now give you the findings of Judge John Gregan :- Conclusions 166. In the circumstances I would make the following conclusions: 1. Mr. Stephen Tennant was not validly appointed as first receiver. 2. There was no valid deed of discharge in respect of Mr. Tennant. 3. Mr. McCleary was not validly appointed as receiver. 4. Mr. McCleary’s servants, or agents, represented themselves as agents of Mr. Tennant, not Mr. McCleary on 25th June, 2014. 5. ACC did not sell on the debt which Mr. McPhillips owed to it. 6. The mortgage did contain an express power to take possession of the property and/or express power of sale over the property. 167. In relation to the second set of proceedings: 1. Mr. McPhillips is entitled to damages for trespass to his property because the receivers were not validly appointed. 2. It is not necessary to give a declaration that the servants or agents of the receivers produced false documents. 3. Mr. McPhillips is entitled to a declaration that the receivers were not validly appointed. 4. I will hold over any issue of whether Mr. McPhillips is entitled to damages because an injunction had been wrongly granted. FOOD FOR THOUGHT for the great unwashed.
