(b)the trustee and the creditors have agreed on such auditing and the method of fixing that remuneration,

Accountant in Bankruptcy’s power to carry out audit

2AiB may, at any time, audit the trustee’s accounts and fix the trustee’s remuneration.

Registration of notice of inhibition

3(1)The trustee, from time to time after the trust deed is delivered to the trustee, may cause a notice in such form as is prescribed by act of sederunt to be recorded in the Register of Inhibitions.

(2)Such recording has the same effect as the recording in that register of letters of inhibition against the debtor.

(3)The trustee, after—

(a)the debtor’s estate has been distributed finally among the debtor’s creditors, or

(b)the trust deed has otherwise ceased to be operative,

must cause a notice in such form as is so prescribed to be recorded in that register recalling the notice recorded under sub-paragraph (1).

Lodging of claim to bar effect of limitation of actions

4The submission to the trustee, acting under a trust deed, of a claim by a creditor bars the effect of any enactment or rule of law relating to limitation of actions.

Valuation of claims

5(1)Unless the trust deed otherwise provides, schedule 2 applies in relation to a trust deed as it applies to a sequestration but subject to the following modifications.

(2)In paragraphs 1, 2 and 4, for the word “sequestration”, wherever it occurs, there is substituted “granting of the trust deed”.

(3)In paragraph 3(3), for paragraphs (a) and (b) and the words “the trustee or sheriff” which immediately follow paragraph (b) there is substituted “the trustee”.
