Hill and another v Haines [2007] EWCA Civ 1284

“A property adjustment order made in ancillary relief proceedings, whether following a contested hearing or a compromise agreement, was made for consideration and was not therefore a transaction at an undervalue under section 339 of the Insolvency Act 1986. Parliament could not have intended that an order transferring the former matrimonial home from one spouse to the other should be capable of automatic nullification at the suit of the trustee in bankruptcy of a spouse against whom a bankruptcy order had subsequently made on his or her own petition.”
