Reply To: Legal Owner of Property?


Tricky! If the property is owned freehold then under reg 2 he will excluded under definition of an owner and the rest of the detail will be irrelevant to the decision.

Not so easy if leasehold and that will be shown on the Land Registry. I would also look up Europa (and the claimant) on Companies House.

It might be that the bankruptcy was not actually enforced as the Court accepted that there was plenty of money around. Unravelling the finances behind this is not going to be easy. But you cannot pay HB just because the matter is complex.

I suspect that there is a lot of money involved here. This sounds risky stuff and only a specialist would take this on and only for substantial fees.

Topaz are here and seem to be that type of smaller specialist that I suspected.

I am guessing that there is a highly complex deal here possibly involving some millions in total.

I cannot see any grounds to pay HB myself. If the case did go to Tribunal, you can ask for the Judge to have the assistance of a financial expert.
