Hi.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
I am sorry but he is right. You cannot just change ownership in this way.
You do have a civil claim against him for non payment but you have to sue at the small claims court for that sum. You cannot enforce by changing ownership.
Sorry if that is bad news.
Can I clarify anything for you?
