Rule 18: Recovery and subrogation


Where a grant is made otherwise than by way of loan or if by way of a loan repayment of the loan is waived or otherwise the borrower has failed to repay part or all of the loan, the Society shall be subrogated to the rights and remedies of the person to whom or on whose behalf the grant is made (the recipient) to the extent of the amount of the grant. In such event the recipient shall if required by the SRA whether before or after the making of a grant and upon the SRA giving to the recipient a sufficient indemnity against costs, prove in any insolvency and/or winding-up of the defaulting practitioner and sue for recovery of the loss in the name of the recipient but on behalf of the Society. The recipient shall also comply with all proper and reasonable requirements of the SRA for the purpose of giving effect to the Society's rights and shall permit the SRA to have conduct of such proceedings.
