PRE – Register I Change of Ownership
UK EQUINE LAW requires ALL CHANGES OF OWNERSHIP for PRE HORSES to be REGISTERED with BAPSH Ltd within 30 DAYS of PURCHASE
INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHANGE/TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP FOR PRE HORSES IN THE UK & IRELAND – 2017
PLUS SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR VERY YOUNG FOALS AT BOTTOM OF PAGE
REGISTER I – PRE HORSES – TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP OCCURS IN TWO STAGES IN THE UK.
DISCOUNT OF £10.00 WHEN BOTH STAGES APPLIED FOR TOGETHER
BAPSH suggests that the Seller pays for and completes the Stage I Transfer (UK) to ensure the sold horse is no longer the Seller’s legal responsibility. Completion of Stage II Transfer (LGPRE, SPAIN) can ONLY be done by the new owner. (If both applications are received together, even if one from buyer & one from seller, the discount will still be given.)
UK EQUINE LAW REQUIREMENTS – COMPULSORY
Stage 1 This Transfer accomplishes the Change of Ownership within the UK for BAPSH Ltd Registered Horses. It updates the Passport into the new owner’s name and address, and updates the UK database records so that your horse’s MICROCHIP is registered to your contact details.
This Transfer process is a legal requirement for all PRE horses within 30 days of the Sale being completed.
Recently Imported PREs – UK Import Registration with BAPSH Ltd includes the Stage 1 Transfer – no extra fee.
Stage I – PROCEDURE – Download the BAPSH Ltd Transfer of Ownership Application 2017. Complete the form with all requested details, including date of sale, and the signatures of both seller and buyer. The fee is £25.00 – inc.P&P (Cheque/Postal Order payable to BAPSH Ltd).
The form will be rejected without the genuine seller’s signature
Send the Transfer Form, with the Horse Passport and the Cheque, to the BAPSH Ltd Studbook Registrar, who will complete all necessary changes of ownership for UK law and return the Passport to you within 10-14 working days. Completion of the Stage 1 Transfer means that the horse is now the legal responsibility of the new owner within the UK and the MICROCHIP is registered to the new owner’s contact details
A PRE Seller with an ANCCE-LGPRE Breeder/Owner Code should complete the ANCCE-LGPRE notification of SALE – Register I (PRE) – ANCCE-LGPRE Removal of SOLD Horse/s from Your LGPRE List of Horses and email or post it to the BAPSH Ltd Registry Office so that the horse/s can be removed from their ANCCE-LGPRE Breeder/Owner Code List of Horses. Or alternatively the Seller should go to their Private Breeder/Owner Code Zone on www.lgancce.com and remove the SOLD horse/s from their List themselves.
ANCCE-LGPRE (SPANISH STUDBOOK) REQUIREMENTS – RECOMMENDED
Stage II – This second stage Transfer, known as LGPRE Service 619, creates the Change of Ownership in the Spanish Studbook in Seville (ANCCE-LGPRE) which is the mother Studbook. The application for an LGPRE Service 619 is done via the BAPSH Registry Service and uses the horse’s ANCCE CARTA DE TITULARIDAD/PROPIEDAD (Ownership Card) and the ANCCE International Service Application form.
The LGPRE Service 619 Transfer is ESSENTIAL for all PRE horses if they are to be Breeding stock or Potential Breeding Stock.
BAPSH Ltd strongly recommends that the new owner applies for this second stage Transfer so that the Ownership recorded in the ANCCE-LGPRE matches the Ownership recorded by BAPSH Ltd and DEFRA
Stage II – PROCEDURE

iv) WHAT HAPPENS NEXT – Upon receipt, the Studbook Registrar will pay LGPRE, input the new owner’s data into the Spanish Studbook, and send the Carta de Titularidad/Propiedad and ANCCE International Application for Service to LGPRE in Spain. LGPRE creates a new Carta de Propiedad in new owner’s name and LGPRE Code and sends the Carta back to the BAPSH Ltd. It is 4 to 6 weeks before the new Carta is received in the BAPSH Ltd Registry office. The Registrar updates the UK database, makes a copy of the Carta, and posts the Carta de Propiedad by Recorded Delivery to the new owner.

TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP FOR PRE FOALS & YOUNGSTOCK WITHOUT PASSPORTS ISSUED
1.BAPSH registered Foals in the middle of LGPRE Service 103 Inscription can have BOTH Transfer Stages done before their Passport is issued. The BAPSH Transfer is the same as an adult horse Stage 1 described above Transfer of Ownership Application 2017.
The Stage 2 LGPRE Service 619 Transfer is done as follows,
a) PREINSCRIPTION DOCUMENT-OWNER’S BLUE CARBON COPY. Both the Seller and the Buyer sign at the bottom and complete the Buyer’s Data – The Buyer MUST have an LGPRE Breeder or Horse Owner Code.
b) ANCCE-LGPRE International Service Application – use the Breeding & Birth Certificate Number (C.Cubricion) in column 1 instead of the Passport number (which has not yet been issued)
c) Send these two LGPRE documents with the £55.00 fee, plus the BAPSH Transfer application and £25.00 fee, if not applied for previously, to BAPSH to process. The new ANCCE Passport will be issued straight into the Buyer’s Name.
Remember to discount combined fee by £10 if both Transfers are applied for together.
2.Very Young Foals – LGPRE Service 103 Inscription not applied for yet – can be transferred by means of a Stage 1 BAPSH Ltd Transfer alone. The BAPSH Transfer and fee MUST accompany the Foal Inscription Application paperwork (Breeding & Birth Certificate + ANCCE International Application for Service 103 + Service 103 Fee). The Change of Ownership MUST also be recorded in the bottom section of the WHITE COPY of the BREEDING & BIRTH CERTIFICATE sent to the BAPSH Office; BOTH Seller and Buyer signatures MUST be present. The Buyer MUST have an LGPRE BREEDER CODE because the foal will be put straight into the new owner’s Code and the LGPRE Foal Inscription will be processed in the Buyer’s LGPRE Code. Foals cannot be inscribed in a Horse Owner Code.
