METHOD OF ESTABLISHING TITLE/OWNERSHIP WITHOUT SIGNED TRANSFER
3.06.01 SUBJECT: Transfer by TWHBEA between persons to assist in establishing ownership records consistent with transfers and current to physical possession of a horse. This is to be considered a procedure of last resort, after other reasonable attempts have failed. TWHBEA will not act as a fact finder, and is non-party to any civil suit between persons to establish title or ownership.
B. Must Have TWHBEA Affidavit From Current Possessor
The affidavit of possessor (claimant) must include purchase date and pertinent details. The affidavit must satisfy the questions of from whom, where and when the horse(s) was purchased, bequeathed, given, rescued, traded, etc., and the general circumstances involved. Copies of all paperwork (cancelled checks included) utilized in the transaction must be submitted as attachments and must be consistent with the facts in the claimant’s affidavit.
C. Can Be No Objections From Previous Owner
If the last “owner of record” objects in writing to the transfer within 30 days of the letter(s) in Paragraph 1, above, having been sent, TWHBEA will not process the transfer absent court order or written agreement between the “owner of record” and the present possessor.
All fees must be paid in advance of action and are non-refundable.
This notification is made for thirty (30) days prior to being placed in effect, January 13, 2018.
