Smile Transfer of Ownership

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could help me. I have been given my horses passport and other documents (just purchased a highland pony on a very loose arrangement) and I have noticed that the forms the old owner has filled in have been dated 21 may 2015 when this was not the day I purchased the horse, therefore, the 30 period to register new ownership has passed. I really need to send his docs off asap but as this says 21st may 2015 and it is now Nearly august, what should I do? I do not want to risk getting a fine for not being within the regulated time frame when this was not my fault, do I just get the form filled out again as of the date that the passport was handed over?

I would be grateful for anyones help and advice on this as this is my first horse and I really do not want to get in trouble!

Thanks

Call the old owner and ask her to fill in a new form. Call the Highland Society and explain what has happened or get a pen of the same colour and change to five to an eight and wait until August 8 th to send it in.

Oh, Lordy... I don't know. Two of mine don't even have Transfer of Ownership papers, and yes, that does worry me. They are sort of rescues- the people who owned them previously knew nothing of horses- which is probably why they didn't ask to do a transfer-of-ownership thing- and things went down pretty quickly. Fortunately for my two sweeties, someone called the state enough until they did something about it. They told them that if they didn't do something by March 16 (?) they would take them away. On March 15 we bought two of the three (the third was a stallion so sadly we couldn't take him in). Unfortunately, Paw snuck off without me to go buy them, he said later that he didn't want me to come because he was afraid I would keep them from wanting to lower the price, which was kind of ridiculous because they were already priced $400 for the both of them. They brought it down to $200 for both. they came back with no Transfer of Ownership papers; that's what you get when you don't bring me. :P anyway, I pray that they never find out that you need such papers, because although I don't think the people are bad people (albeit ignorant), the fact remains that most likely if they wanted them back, it might be possible for them to take them back. ~shiver~
Not trying to distract from the original post, but I just really wanted to know if there was anything I could do. I can't just ask them to do it because I'm a minor and I also can't get my parents or grandparents to ask them because they wouldn't take it seriously. *sigh*

Have a blessed day!

Lilyandpistol - did you get a bill of sale with yours? Or any sort of receipt?

How much is the late fee?

The fact that passport was mentioned clues me that this post is from the UK and when a horse changes hands its passport has to go with it and change of ownership mandatory.
greenhaven and LilyandPistol like this.

Most courts in the US will uphold you claim on the horses as long as you have the receipts proving you have paid for their care. Registration papers mean nothing because they are often out of date and missing one or more owner transfers.

I might have missed this info in the posts above, but did you write a check to pay for the horses?
