10. The registrar shall refuse to register a transfer if he notes that the application for registration of the transfer does not contain the particulars required in sections 17 and 18, if the applicant does not present the copy contemplated in section 19 or if payment of the duties is not made except, in the last case, where there is an exemption or payment is deferred.
The registrar may refuse to register the transfer if he has reasonable cause to believe that duties must be paid and that payment has not been made.
The registrar shall, however, register the transfer on the presentation of a receipt of the Minister or of another registrar attesting the payment of the duties relating to the same transfer.
