I've had this similar issue in the past with UK domains, see: http://www.acorndomains.co.uk/domain-name-registrars/53404-uk-reg-fasthosts-domcollect.html
Are we talking about .com or another generic TLD ?
Expiring domains are auto-renewed with the registry, the registrar has up to 45 days to cancel the renewal and let the domain in redemption. Otherwise the name would enter redemption from day one, and it would be more expensive to renew.
You normally have a grace period of some sort, but read the terms carefully.
By the way many other registrars auction off expired domains (these are know as prerelease) domains.
Keep us posted!

Wow, interesting stuff. I must admit i'm surpised there isn't a lot more of these conflicts around. However showing you renewed them prior to Expiry or ownership transferred within the current registration period would make it 'cut and dry'
I have a good relationship with Godaddy - (only because of my personal account manager) but the've played around with so called recovery periods so often that you wonder if they have a "maximum" capitilisation chart on a constant rolling update
Best of luck with this! A thread to keep a close eye on!
1&1 has got a bad reputation for domains anyway + confusing procedures.
What are the domains in question ?
Separate names with a comma.
