A hipoteca e a sua relação com o processo de insolvência

  • Mariana Ribeiro Ferreira (Student)

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


In case of default, the mortgage assigns to the mortgagee the possibility of being paid for the value of the thing that charges, with prevalence in relation to other creditors. If the debtor is insolvent, he will be in all likelihood in default to the mortgage lender, which gives the latter a privileged position in insolvency proceedings. The creditor will be considered a secured creditor, so within the range of insolvency creditors he belongs to those who will be paid first. Although the primacy position that occupies, the mortgagee may not obtain the satisfaction of his credit, as it he will only be paid after the payment of the debts of the insolvent mass and after the payment of creditors holding any prevailing guarantees, such as special real estate privileges and right of retention.
