When you are buying a Limited Company the transction will be in the form of transfer of shares at agreed price.

You can check with the ROC the records of their filings you have to find out any amounts payable by the co. to any of taxation departments or any other local bodies.

when it comes to secured loans you can check with the bankers of the company and also roc records.

As far as unsecured loans are concerned you can check with suppliers regarding their dues. You also have to update your self with ESI PF etc.

It will be a good thing to advertise in papers regarding takeover of company and asking any body to contact within stipulated time in case of any dues or any other objections.
