    Slide3

    The insolvency proceeding gets the cross-border status in case, if a debtor has assets and/or creditors in more then one Member State In order to achieve the aim of improving the effectiveness of insolvency proceedings having cross-border effects, it is necessary, and appropriate, that the provisions on jurisdiction, recognition and applicable law in this area should be contained in a Union measure which is binding and directly applicable in all Member States

    Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings (II)

    European Parliament and the Council of the European Union, having regard to the proposal from the European Commission, have adopted Regulation (EU) 2015/848 of 20 May 2015 on Insolvency proceedings (hereinafter –

    Regulation II

    The Debtor’s Property

    The property of a insolvent debtor is the

    immovable property

    and

    moveable property

    of a debtor, including:

    funds;

    the property recovered in accordance with the national Law;

    fruits that have been acquired from the property of the debtor during the insolvency proceedings of a legal person;

    and other property legally acquired during the insolvency proceedings of a insolvent person (

    Insolvency Law of the Republic of Latvia, 2010:93

    )

    Slide7

    The Debtor’s Property Selling (I)

    Each

    Member State’s normative acts intend different methods of sale of the property of a debtor coordinated with the secured creditor:

    with an auction;

    without an auction

    The problems arise at the moment when insolvency proceedings administrator establishes the immovable property in the different Member State and proceedings are mostly related to the selling procedure due to the law of the Member State where the immovable property is located

    The frontal problem is the lack of the information; therefore, insolvency practitioner does not get the information about possible property in different Member States or outside the European Union

    Slide8

    The Debtor’s Property Selling (II)

    What happens in the insolvency proceedings State, where the immovable property is possible to be sold only on the public auction? The insolvency administrator finds out that in this Member State it is possible to sell the property at an auction, but the problem is that such auction can be organized only through special electronic means and only local insolvency administrators have an access to such auction system

    To resolve the mentioned problem it would be necessary to provide that all property selling procedures by public auction should be organized by using electronic means within the European Union (Latvian insolvency administrators sell debtor’s property in the electronic auction site –

    www.izoles.ta.gov.lv

    since

    01.01.2016)

    Slide9

    The Debtor’s Property Selling (III)

    Another resolution

    to the problem that insolvency administrators cannot or it is difficult to sell the immoveable property, which is located in another Member State, would be to permit to open the secondary proceedings at the Member State, where property is located,

    without any requirement for establishment

    within the territory of that Member State

    Necessary to consummate Regulation II Article 3 (2) and provide that in case it is impossible or complicated to sell the immoveable property, which is located in another Member State, the courts can open the secondary insolvency proceedings (run in parallel to the main insolvency proceedings

    )

    Slide10

    Transparency of Cross-border Insolvency Proceedings (I)

    The frontal problems concerning the procedural framework for determining jurisdiction is lack of information about the possible property of debtor in the other Member State or somewhere else At this moment insolvency administrator can find the information about the debtor’s property in the local public registersNot always the debtor performs duties in good faith…

    Slide11

    Transparency of Cross-border Insolvency proceedings (II)

    Regulation II provides for the interconnection of the Insolvency Registers of each Member State via the European e-Justice Portal (www.e-justice.europa.eu) The certain minimum information relating to the insolvency proceedings should be published in an electronic register and should be available to the public free of charge This provision is in force since June 26th of 2016 and helps insolvency administrators to find out the necessary information about the each Member State local legislation and therefore debtor’s property selling methods By analogy with the Insolvency Registers in order to promote the honouring of the debtor’s obligations it should be necessary to include in the Regulation II a provision ensuring that Land register offices or similar institutions in all Member states interconnect in one Land Register that would be available to the insolvency administrators within the EU
