Detagged domain - advice needed

There is a .co.uk domain name I want to support my offline business. It wouldnt have much value on the open market but its important to me.
Problem is the current status says 'detagged'. What does this mean exactly and how can I get my hands on it?
There was a limited company of the same name which was dissolved in 2007 but I have no up to date contact details.
Any advice greatly appreciated.

All "detagged" means is the domain name isn't assigned to a Registrar. Add 92 days to the expiry date and the domain name will probably be deleted on that date. From then you may be successful at registering FCFS or pay to use dropcatching services.

It means that there is no current Nominet Tag-Holder assigned to manage the domain - they'd need to deal direct with Nominet and pay the 10+vat fee to have the tag-changed shoudl they wish to do so.

*Normally* a domain gets detagged when there is no longer a relationship between registration service and registrant, although there are cases of malicious detagging by certain larger registrars in order to be a PITA to people leaving.

If it's owned by the disolved company, then it'll _probably_ get deleted for non-renewal ~3months after the expiry date
If it's owned by an individual, then you'll need to approach them to discuss purchasing it
