  Bankruptcy Searches in England, Wales and Scotland  

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 consent.

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.
