The TP(RAI)A 2010 applies to more insolvency situations than the Third Parties (Rights Against Insurers) Act 1930 (TP(RAI)A 1930), specifically applying to a relevant person (ie the insured or the corporation or individual who has insurance cover against liabilities which have been incurred to a third party). One of the main improvements under the TP(RAI)A 2010 is to strengthen the third party's rights to obtain information about the rights transferred to him, allowing him to assess whether they are valuable or worthless.
