"Without Prejudice I am writing with regards to the domain name above which is currently registered to xxx. Unfortunately we have been made aware that this domain name may have been cancelled in error on xx January 2009. We are currently investigating this matter, and will contact you again when we have established the situation. After our investigation, we may have to act to correct the error by cancelling the name and re-registering it for the original registrant. This letter is therefore to put you on notice that this name is under investigation and that, while this is occurring, we will not accept any transfer requests in respect of the name. We would also suggest that you do not enter into any arrangement to sell the name to a third party, as we may have to withdraw the name. We apologise for this situation." Who would be liable to deal with the buyer if the domain had been sold, and then reclaimed by Nominet? On two previous occasions domains were taken back with a few days notice, this time we are being informed of an investigation.
