Creditors in this economy are likely to look for remedies, such as statutory demands, to deal with unpaid indebtedness. The judges of the Court of Appeal had to consider one such demand in Collier v P & M J Wright (Holdings) Ltd. A company lent funds to three property developers, who were in a partnership. The partnership had ended and the other two partners were bankrupt. In these circumstances there is a general rule of joint liability for an unlimited partnership. If a creditor could not be repaid from the partnership funds, any one of the partners could be made liable to make the payment. The remaining solvent partner claimed that he had a defense. Because of the scarcity of money some debtors may force creditors to accept a payment of a lesser sum than the amount of the debt. In the event they may not always succeed due to the rule in Pinnel's case, because the exceptions do not always apply.
