By ordering a Bankruptcy
Search you can discover whether any person or company is,
has been or is about to be made bankrupt. This may be advantageous
in helping you make business decisions. We have a direct
on-line connection to the Land Registry in England, Wales
and Scotland and can obtain a bankruptcy search certificate
for you the same day that you place your order.
If a person or company owns property the
Land Registry will create a restriction, notice or caution
in the property register so that a sale or mortgage cannot
be made without the trustee in bankruptcy's consent. If no
property is owned the Land Registry will create a Caution
Title containing full details of the bankruptcy. The existence
of a Caution Title will prevent the registration of a new
title following any attempt to sell without the trustee's
In addition to obtaining a bankruptcy search,
where a bankrupt owns property we can obtain a copy of his
property register; where he does not, we can obtain a copy
of the Caution Title filed by HM Land Registry. Orders are
made via LandSearch, our sibling web site.
Bankruptcy searches in Scoland are known
