There is an interesting article on "Land, security in land and the European Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings 2000" by Paul Omar in the latest issue of the Conveyancer and Property Lawyer. The article discusses the interaction between insolvency law and land law in the UK, France and EU. It summarises Council Regulation 1346/2000, noting the provision for the law of the Member State in which property is situated to govern land issues. It also examines the exceptions to the default lex concursus rule introduced by Arts.5-15 of the Regulation, and addresses the types of security interest affected, particularly where no local equivalent exists.
