Delivery to the creditors and opting out

7.48.—(1) Where the Act or a rule requires a housing administrator to deliver a document to the creditors, or the creditors in a class, the requirement is satisfied by the delivery of the document to all such creditors of whose address the housing administrator is aware other than opted-out creditors (where the opt out applies).

(a)a notice which the Act requires to be delivered to all creditors without expressly excluding opted-out creditors;

(b)a notice of a change in the housing administrator or the contact details for the housing administrator;

(c)a notice as provided for by section 246C(2) of the Act; or

(d)a document which these Rules require to accompany a notice within sub-paragraphs (a) to (c).

(5) An opted-out creditor—

(6) The creditor may at any time revoke the election to opt out by a further notice in writing, authenticated and dated by the creditor and delivered to the housing administrator.

(7) The creditor ceases to be an opted-out creditor from the date the notice is received by the housing administrator.

(iii)it is a notice of a dividend or proposed dividend or a notice which the court orders to be sent to all creditors or all creditors of a particular category to which the creditor belongs;

(c)a statement that opting-out will not affect the creditor’s entitlement to receive dividends should any be paid to creditors;
