    Under/in name

    The house is registered under the father's name or in the father's name.

    which is correct?

    Re: Under/in name

    I would say that 'in' is most frequently used, although I have seen 'under' in a similar context.

    Do you mean "in" is used in this case to give the meaning of ownership? I used to think that "under" is more accurate for that sense.

    Re: Under/in name

    In the US, if you're talking about ownership, you'd say the deed is IN the person's name.

    You don't "register" a house.

    Likewise, with a car: The title is in his name.

    A house is not registered. The title is in your father's name.

    A company is registered under the Companies Act

    Some organization is registered under the Data Protection Act

    Thank you, this is very clear, but what about a land? what will you say of its registration, in or under the name?

    Re: Under/in name

    A person/company holds the title to a piece of land. The Land Title is registered with some government agency.
