You have purchased a registered American Paint
Horse, but the previous owner has not provided
a properly signed transfer for you, or there are
one or more transfers of ownership that have
have not been recorded. What can you do to get
the horse transferred into your ownership at
APHA without the properly signed transfers? The
Transfer Indemnity Procedure may help.
◆ Your first step is to attempt to contact the previous owner(s) by certified mail. The certified mail
receipt will be your proof to APHA that you have
attempted to contact the previous owner(s). You
should allow 30 days for the post office to deliver your letter, then if you have not received a
response, you may forward the items listed below
to APHA, “Attention: Registration Services” to
begin the Transfer Indemnity process.
◆ This procedure is intended for previous owners
that cannot be located or will not respond to
requests for signed transfers. If a previous
owner responds that he/she is not in agreement for the horse to be transferred, that
he/she refuses to sign a transfer, or that there
is a dispute of any kind, APHA will not transfer the horse and this will be considered a civil
dispute outside the realm of APHA authority.
◆ APHA will then attempt to contact all previous
owners by certified mail. This can become a
lengthy procedure, as APHA is obliged to contact
each in-between owner that is established, and
each owner is given at least 30 days to respond. If
APHA does not receive a response from previous
owners, the following items are required:
◆ 1. Notarized statement by the buyer providing
the actual date of the transfer.
◆ 2. Copies of cancelled checks, bills of sale, or
other documentation that would help establish purchase and date of sale.
◆ 3. Copies of attempts by the buyer to contact
the seller to obtain the signed transfer(s).
◆ 4. Notarized and signed indemnity agreement
with $75 indemnity fee.
◆ 5. A $15 fee for each transfer that is established,
and a $40 membership fee if necessary.
◆ 6. Current direct right and left side view
photographs for identification purposes.
◆ 7. If you do not have the original registration certificate, an Affidavit for Duplicate Certificate
by Current Owner form must be completed
and notarized, and a $25 fee is required.
◆ The indemnity process allows APHA to update
the transfer history without the properly signed
transfers based on the documentation that is
received and approved by the Registration
Review Committee.
◆ To begin this process, send all items to APHA
“Attention: Registration Services” at the address
above. You should send at least one transfer fee
of $15 and your membership fee along with the
transfer indemnity fee of $75, in order to begin
the process. Any remaining transfer(s) or other
fees may be billed at a later time. Rush services
and fees are not applicable.
