    Default is a logbook proof of ownership

    Hi guys me again, can any body please advise me if the name on a car logbook is proof of legal owner.
    Can a logbook have one persons name, but be legally owned by another.
    If so can you point me to any law supporting this, I have issues with Logbook loans, who took my car due to a logbook loan placed on it.
    I have studied the Bill of Sales Act which gives them the security on my car. It states sec 5 of the Act, contains two important provisions avoiding a Bill of Sale, "except as against the grantor," in respect of

    (1) personal chattels not specifically described in the scheduled;
    and

    (2) personal chattels specifically described therein of which the grantor was not the true owner at the date of the deed

    Can any body please clarify the legal term for the following

    1.Legal ownership

    2.Equitable ownership.

    Or just advice on legal requirements if any on a logbook

    A logbook is not proof of ownership. Its a proof of a keeper.
    A finance company owns the car until the payments are finished, but, you "keep" the car at your address.
    thats what was explained to me by the fuzz..

    Hi, but the car didnt belong to the person who took out the loan. They have now sold the car and I have lost alot of money. And the signatures on all the paperwork are all different and not the borrowers

    Then you are a victim of fraud, the police should be informed. However, I would go along with the person who had the loan and make a statement to the Police, stating that the signatureicon is not his/hers. The Police must make inquires based on your statments. That would be my next step.
