The AppleCare coverage is tied to the iMac's serial number and will automatically transfer to the new owner. I don't know what details they keep, but a simple call to Apple should be all it takes if there's anything pertinent.

Obviously not, since UK phone numbers start with 0. I don't mean to be rude, but what don't you try using your own eyes? I'm sure you are fully as capable of using a phone book as I am, and I don't know all of Apple's international phone numbers off the top of my head.

I looked up the phone number for AppleCare UK: it's (44) 0844 209 0611. From what I know about transferring AppleCare ownership, you actually need to call in; you can't just forward them information through the postal service and expect them to fix it for you without additional verbal contact. AppleCare has a division named Agreement Admin who handles all aspects of the agreement itself, from refunds, to transfers, enrollment, etc, so ask for them when you call in. You'll need to provide details about the new owner, i.e. email address/telephone so the transfer process can be initiated.
