When buying registered longhorns from an individual or association sale, whose repsonsibilty is it to fill out and send in the registration transfer papers, along with the the fee? Is it the buyer or the seller? I thought it was the seller's obligation to fill out the paperwork and send in the fees. After everything is complete, shouldn't you end up with a new certificate, with your name as the owner?

I don't lnow about the Longhorn rules and regulations, but with Angus it is normally the seller that pays for and handles the transfer to the new buyer. However there is times that the seller or sale manager will announce before the sale that the responsibility to pay the transfer fee will fall to the buyer but the seller will furnish signed transfer authorization.
Hope this makes sense.

With Longhorns and ITLA, TLBAA, it is the seller's responsibility to complete any transfer papers and pay the transfer fee. His/her original certificate along with the transfer form is sent to the association along with the required fee. Then association then sends you either a new certificate or they make an endorsement on the back validating you are the new owner.

It is a good idea to have the seller fill out the transfer document when you pay for and pick up the animal and give you a copy. Some sellers are very slow about paperwork and can cause you frustration (true of anyone with any breed). Better to have copy of signed papers at delivery.

Allow up to about 4 weeks for any paperwork to be processed by the association. Paying for a "priority" rush handling option of the paperwork by the association doesn't necessarily equate to an expedited transfer or registration.

It is the sellers responsibility to complete the transaction and finish the paperwork. In the event that the seller in your case did not, you can call the TLBAA office and "report" the breeder. They are educating their breeders on proper registrations and transfers to make sure that the buyer has a positive experience.
