In general, a receivership is a process that is put in place to protect a company. A period of receivership may be thought of as a protective umbrella for a troubled company.


Receivership forces a company which is in debt to obey the original loan agreement contract between it and its lender.

The lender will appoint a receiver to collect funds on their behalf. However, if there’s no money available, they may choose to release a business’s assets to repay debts that are owed.

Although it is mainly banks that have used this method to recover debt owed to them, receivership can also be used as a last resort procedure for other lenders.
