What Can an Agent or a Grantee Do With a Vehicle Power of Attorney Form?

There are different actions and privileges that an assigned agent or grantee will be able to do with the presentation of the vehicle power of attorney form. Enlisted below are some of the common responsibilities and capabilities of an agent to the subject of the power or the vehicle of the grantor throughout the period stated in the power of attorney:

  • Purchase and sell the vehicle – When choosing an agent or grantee for a vehicle power of attorney, the grantor must ensure that the agent is knowledgeable and an expert in handling finances, especially if the main role of the agent is related to vehicle transactions involving selling and purchasing a vehicle for the grantor. Also, the agent should know the preferences and the needs of the grantor if ever he will be purchasing a vehicle such as the type of vehicle, the model, the specs, and other information which should help the agent in deciding on what vehicle to purchase with the grantor’s finances.
  • Register the vehicle – If the grantor of the power is incapacitated or is unable to be present during the intended period of his vehicle registration, then he must inform and allow his agent to conduct the registration on behalf of his absence. The process of registration, the types of documents or registration forms and requirements which must be submitted by the agent, as well as the date of when the registration must be done should be stated in the power of attorney form, or yet be informed to the agent. On the other hand, there are also States and countries who will allow an individual to register a vehicle even without the representation of the power of attorney which is why it is essential to inquire to the authorities first.
  • Record liens – If the grantor of the vehicle power of attorney had debts, then the agent can be assigned and be permitted to record liens. A lien is a type of security interest which is a requirement mandated by some financial aid provider or loan agency to ensure that the borrower will pay his debts on time. The vehicle will then be released or be discharged from the lien if the loan borrower has completed paying his loan and have settled any disputes in lieu of the loan.
  • Apply for a title certificate – If the vehicle was newly sold or newly purchased by the agent with the preferences and the resources of the grantor, then a title certificate form must be obtained. A title certificate is a legal form which proves that the person whose name is stated in the certificate is the owner of the vehicle. In addition, if the grantor of the power already has the title certificate yet would need a copy or a duplicate of the form, then he can request the agent to acquire a duplicate from the State’s authorities using the information of the owner and the vehicle, as well as the power of attorney form.

It is essential that the reading which was conducted by the vehicle owner to his vehicle’s odometer is accurate and updated. In the event that the owner is uncertain of the actual mileage count, then he must indicate his uncertainty in the form by certifying that the stated mileage reading is not the actual or the exact mileage count of his vehicle. Moreover, after the vehicle owner or the grantor completes the form, a notary public must sign and seal the power of attorney to make it a legally verified document.
