229 Loss sustained by reason of disclaimer

Any person sustaining loss or damage in consequence of the operation of a disclaimer is deemed to be a creditor of the bankrupt to the extent of the loss or damage, and accordingly may prove for the loss or damage as a bankruptcy debt1. The claims of a landlord under a lease are treated in the same way as those arising from a breach of contract2. The effect of any vesting order3 must be taken into account in assessing the extent of any loss or damage sustained
