The legalization is the process of authenticating or certifying a legal document in order for a foreign country's legal system to recognize it as valid and with full legal effect. You get a UK public document ‘legalised’ by asking the UK government to confirm that a UK public official’s signature, seal or stamp on the document is genuine.
The Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents has supplanted legalization as the default procedure by a system of apostille. You can have the apostille if both the origin country of the document and the destination country are party to the treaty. The apostille itself is a stamp on which standard validating information is supplied. It is available from the competent authority of the origin country. Often the document has to be notarized before it can be apostilled.
If you document was created or issued in the UK then it will be accepted in the UK without the apostille. It is not necessary to legalise UK documents unless you are using them outside of the UK.
The Authorities can legalise most UK documents if they bear an original signature, seal or stamp from a UK public organisation or official. A UK document is a document originated or executed in the UK. The certification made by a solicitor or a notary must state clearly what exactly it is they are certifying in relation to the document. They must sign with their own name and not use a company signature and they must clearly print their name and their firm's name under the signature.

The Companies Act 2006 set a limit of no more than 6 years for a company dissolved after 1st October 2009 to be restored to the register at Companies House.
For companies struck off prior to 1st October 2009, the deadline is the earlier date of 30th September 2015 or 20 years. This means that some restorations may no longer be possible.
Yes they can. What are the tax implication when:
1. Receiving rent from the property ?
The rental income would be subject to 20% withholding tax unless the company files an election to receive the income gross. It would need to file a tax return to obtain relief for expenses of the letting.
2. Selling the property with a gain?
The gain would be exempt unless the property is valued at more than £2M. If it is the company would be subject to CGT. Even if the company is exempt any UK resident shareholders would be attributed gains in the company and could be taxed.
Is it similar for a UK resident and a non Uk resident person?
As above a non resident shareholder would be exempt from CGT on the gain (assuming they meet the 5 year non residence requirement). A UK resident shareholder (owning more than 25% of the shares) could be attributed the gains.

A private company limited by shares is a company that has shareholders with limited liability and shares that cannot be offered to the general public. Limited by shares means that the liability of the shareholders is limited to the capital they originally invested. This means that in case of insolvency of the company, the shareholders' private assets are protected but the money he invested at the beginning will be lost.

This entity does not usually have a share capital or any shareholder, but has members who act as guarantors. At the incorporation or when a member is added, he has to indicate an amount (amount guaranteed) he will be liable for.
