My partner gave a car registered in his name to he’s mother, 4 years on she has never paid a toll and we now have people chasing us for the money . 1-can the debt be transferred to her name now it has gone this far 2-will this affect our credit history badly? Please help!
OK you probably need legal advice here and I am not providing that.
I would suspect that the owner is responsible for the debts being your husband. Also from memory you are legally required to transfer the rego within a few weeks after you sell it. So going to the RTA and stating she owns the car may not help you.
I know that sucks but you will have to
1. Pay the fines
2. Transfer the rego
3. Recover the money from his mother either though a court action or a better way.
