As a trader, it is business as usual to sell stock in trade. However, a creditor becomes alarmed if a trader sells off goods not in the ordinary course of business at a time when that trader’s financial position brings thoughts of liquidation to the fore. To protect creditors, our law has very strict rules for such instances and, in a property trader context, may result in a declaration that a property sale and resulting registration of transfer and new bond, be declared void. This judgment highlights the considerations.
