What is the effect of the intention or understanding of a party to a transaction where a party intended to transfer a vehicle to another party?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from Wong v. Huang, 2012 BCSC 975 (CanLII):

Evidence has been adduced before me of what various persons said, thought, and did at various times, but it is only the intention of the plaintiff transferor that governs, not the intention or understanding of the transferee or anyone else: Rascal Trucking; Kerr v. Baranow, 2011 SCC 10. Moreover, it is only his intention at the time of the transfer that matters. Thus, if a transferor later regrets the transfer or changes his mind about his intentions, that does not change the nature of the transaction.
