Land registration practice guide: Overseas companies and limited liability partnerships (PG78)
1 June 2018
Guidance for conveyancers on overseas companies and limited liability partnerships (practice guide 78). Section 3.6 on cross-border mergers has been corrected to explain that where the transferee is not a UK company, the merger must be approved by the relevant competent authority in the member state. This may be a Companies Registry rather than a court. Section 4.3 on execution without a common seal has been amended to include an example of execution where the authorised person is a corporate body incorporated in England and Wales. Section 5 on insolvency has been amended to confirm that the evidence of liquidation for an overseas company required is a certified copy of the court order or other documents relied on and the written opinion of a lawyer as to the nature and effect of the liquidation.
