Ltd Company on Title Deed


B

Bypass

On a Title Deed for a residential dwelling, the registered owner is
ANOTHER LTD care of solicitors. I've looked on Companies House website
and only a company by the name THE ANOTHER LTD is listed.

I have a couple of queries from this:

a) is Ltd unique to a UK company, and

b) is there anywhere to search for a Ltd company?

As you have spotted THE etc. is not the same company as the one on the
deeds. There are Ltd companies the world over.
What is your concern, which has prompted your questions?

My previous landlady has refused to refund a not insignificant deposit,
and so I'm preparing for an action in the small claims court. As part
of that preparation, I just thought I'd check the Title with Land
Registry and, to my surprise, the landlady doesn't own the house. It's
registered in this company's name and my curiosity just got the better
of me.

I think he was referring to the term 'limited' rather than the concept
of incorporation with Limited Liability. Very few other countries use
the word 'Limited'.

Can you only use the term "Ltd" if you are a Limited Liability
company?

I seem to recall years ago that companies could add Corp to their name
giving the impression they were bigger/more respectable than they
really were.

Umm, several do particularly those in tax havens, which I would guess what
is happening here. The landlord I rented a place from in Manchester
operated via a Ltd company registered in the Isle of Man, for example. A
company incorporated in the Seychelles may use *any* description including
Ltd, Corp, SA etc.

You can not claim to be a limited company when you are not. There bis a
daily fine I believe.

Yes. In UK 'Corp' means nothing.

Yes, I am a director of one myself! Hence my use of the words 'very
few'.

Not quite 'any' but any the gives a recognised indication of Limited
Liability. i.e.'& Co' would be insufficient. But none the less I take
your point but would assert that Seychelles are part of my ' very few'!

You mean you direct a few Seychelles companies too? I must say I
didn't have you down as one of those international wheeler-dealers.

No. Ireland has Ltd companies, as do most of the British colonies and crown
dependencies. Some of the US states also have Ltd, and a few other
countries do as well.
b) is there anywhere to search for a Ltd company?
You need to look at the country concerned. Some do, some don't.
