Section 32 – Status of order on petition to convert protected trust deed into sequestration

100.This section inserts a new subsection (2A) into section 59C of the 1985 Act. It applies to the situation where a sheriff grants an application by a person in charge of proceedings akin to sequestration commenced in another EU country which requests the conversion of a protected trust deed granted by the debtor into sequestration of the debtor’s estate. The sheriff’s order granting that conversion is to be treated as if it is an award of sequestration granted by the AiB following a debtor application.
