transfer warranties?

I'm trying to sell a Tamron lens that's only three months old and obviously under warranty; I've asked Tamron if the warranty transfers and not gotten a response. I sent in the original registration, but didn't send the bill of sale (BOS) , so after 90 days (soon) it won't be registered with Tamron and the BOS will need to be presented for any warranty-covered services.

In your experience, would it work to give the buyer that original BOS for repairs etc at a local shop?


Edit: since I have yet to deal with photographic warranties, I was surprised to see the following conflict between what Tamron says about their warranty and what Adorama says about how they deal with warranties (and this applies to all on-line resellers and all manufactures apparently):

Tamron: While the lens is under the term of this warranty, please return the lens to the dealer where you purchased it. Adorama: Products requiring repair should be sent directly to the manufacturer/distributor for service.

Normally warranties do not transfer, especially if it says something about "the original owner" in it.
