English term or phrase: equity
Bardzo proszę o wyjaśnienie. W piśmie z brytyjskiego Insolvency Service pojawia się termin "equity" w takim kontekście:
"Please confirm whether or not the property was repossessed and whether it has been sold. If so, could you please confirm if EQUITY was made from the sale after all costs."

"Any equity should be held to the order of the trustee".

Z góry dziękuję za wszelkie wskazówki.

Equity in the property (e.g., a house) is that part of the value of the house after all the mortgage loans have been paid off. Here, there are also fees asssociated with the sale of the house (penalties, realtor's commissions, etc.) to deduct.

Equity also refers to the difference between an asset's current market value -- the amount it could be sold for -- and any debt or claim against it. For example, if you own a home currently valued at $300,000 but still owe $200,000 on your mortgage, your equity in the home is $100,000.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Tak, właśnie o tę ustawę chodzi. Po naradzie z klientem, który miał dodatkowe informacje o kontekście sprawy, doszliśmy do wniosku, że chodzi o 'wartość majątku netto' (część majątku pozostała po zaspokojeniu wierzytelnych pretensji)
