In Ex parte Barton, an important case in South African insolvency law, it appeared, upon the debtor’s application for leave to surrender his estate as insolvent, that he had previously lived in Durban and that all his creditors were in Natal. The court held that the application should be postponed in order for the notice of the application to be published in a Natal newspaper and for the debtor’s schedules to lie for inspection at Durban.
