How is a change of holder request handled when the company declares bankruptcy?

Updated 9 Apr, 2020

A company is in bankruptcy, and the person listed as contact person for the company’s domain name wishes to transfer the domain name to another company. How does the registrar handle this? 

Answer: The registrar must have routines to ensure that the person who requests the change of holder (transfer) is entitled to do so. For a company in bankruptcy, the trustee normally has this right, and the contact persons that were specified probably no longer have the right to act on behalf of the company. As a rule, the trustee must always be contacted in matters concerning companies that have declared bankruptcy.
