Instructions & Checklist
Power of Attorney for Sale of Motor Vehicle

   This Power of Attorney for Sale of Motor Vehicle becomes effective immediately and remains effective until (a) the Vehicle is sold; or (b) in the event of death or incapacity of the Principal; or (c) if the Principal revokes the document (whichever occurs first).

   The Principal (i.e. the person granting the Power of Attorney; sometimes called the Grantor) should sign the document before a Notary. Notarization will allow the Power of Attorney for Sale of Motor Vehicle to be recorded as a public record, if necessary.

   Although not always required, it is always a good idea to also have two witnesses sign the Power of Attorney. The witnesses should be adults. Generally, anyone related by blood or marriage to the Principal, the Agent or the Notary should not be a witness.

   The Principal should keep the original document, as well as a copy. The Agent should have access to the original document as needed.

   The Principal should also be very careful in the selection of the Agent and should be careful in instructing the Agent (i.e. Attorney-in-Fact).

General Information
Power of Attorney for Sale of Motor Vehicle

There are times when it may necessary to allow another person to sell your vehicle on your behalf. This may occur if, for example, the Seller will be away (on a trip) and will not be available to handle the vehicle sale transaction personally.

A Power of Attorney for Sale of Motor Vehicle allows a “mentally” competent natural person (called the “Principal” or “Grantor”) to authorize someone else (called the “Agent” or “Attorney-In-Fact”) to act on his or her behalf in selling the Vehicle specified in the Power of Attorney for Sale of Motor Vehicle form. This particular Form becomes effective immediately and remains effective until the Vehicle is sold, or in the event of death or incapacity of the Grantor or if the Grantor revokes the document (whichever occurs first).

Note that the word "attorney" is not used here to mean "lawyer".  The person acting as the Attorney-In-Fact for the Principal does not need to be a lawyer. Almost anyone can be appointed an Attorney-In-Fact by a power of attorney. The Agent should be a competent adult. The Grantor can revoke a General Power of Attorney at any time.

The Power of Attorney for Sale of Motor Vehicle should always be notarized, even if your state does not require it. Notarization will make it more difficult for any third party to challenge the validity of the Power of Attorney and will allow the Power of Attorney for Sale of Motor Vehicle to be recorded as a public record, if necessary.

Although, some states dont require a Power of Attorney for Sale of Motor Vehicle to be witnessed, it is always a very good idea to do so.

If you are selling or buying a vehicle, you may also consider using the Automobile Bill of Sale forms package available on www.findlegalforms.com, which contains the Automobile Bill of Sale Form, the required Odometer Disclosure Statement Form, simple instructions, a checklist and more.

Whenever appropriate, the instructions included with the forms packages offered for sale, generally include state specific instructions.




CAUTION!



PRINCIPAL: Before signing this document, consider its consequences. You (“principal”) are providing another person (“agent”) with the power to sell your vehicle on your behalf.  Any such action undertaken by your agent, within the scope of this power of attorney document, is legally binding upon you.  If you have any questions about these powers, obtain competent legal advice.
