2 years ago my partner and her then 16 year old daughter purchased a car and held the registration in joint names, with my partners name first.
Now her daughter is 18 it is time the vehicle was solely in her own name and took full ownership and responsibility.
We have just phoned the vehicle registration department and we would have to pay stamp duty on the change of title, even though it's not really changing, it's just having a name removed.
Is this really true ? and If so then no matter how honerable your intentions, you should register the car directly to the real owner.
