    I was looking at registering a name on Heart Internet and the .co.uk is available but the .uk has underneath 'If you own xxxxx.org.uk, please transfer the domain to us first. '

    This normally happens if the .co.uk is already registered, does the .org.uk have automatic rights if the .co.uk is not registered?

    The easiest way to check is to type the .uk domain you are after into the Nominet whois and it will tell you who has rights.
