Surely the quickest solution is to pay the 123 bill directly now, then get
ownership sorted for next year?

Not sure of the specifics, but nominet would be the peeple to talk to to
sort it out - have always found them pretty decent in the past . (we  had
something fairly similar when we bought a donain that had been registered
usuing an Austrailian registrar that had ceased trading in the time between
us buying the domain off someone else and actually getting round to
transfering it )

Probably they'll (the garage co)  need to prove that they're entitled to it
in some way to nominets satisfaction, so any paper trail saying it's
registered on their behalf would help.
