On voluntary winding up of a company, a liqudator who has otherwise

This answer was rated:

On voluntary winding up of a company, a liqudator who has otherwise completed the voliuntary liquidation of the company, ommitted accidentally from the transfer of the company's titles under the Land Transfer Act one title to land which is an integral part of the company's land and is still occupied and used by the shareholders as part of the property . How can this be rectified and the title transferred by the liquidator

christhelawyer : HiWelcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
christhelawyer : The appointment as liquidator gave him the power to deal with the land. In fact he can sign the usual Authorised Nominating Authority directed to his lawyer to place this in his name if necessary, but can also transfer the land to any buyer. The fact it was not included in the first list of properties transmitted to him as liquidator is not a bar to tidying up this other property. This could be an issue if the liquidation has been completed and the company truck off however.

The winding up was otherwise completed some years ago under the 1955 Act.


This transfer would be to the shareholders. Is this a problem? thank you for your response to date.
