I have my old car parked at my friends place but decided to sell it for $1500
1. Can I give Power to Attorney to my friend to sell my car. Is there a format that I can use?
2. What all documents do I have to send him in order to sell my car (ex: my title, ...)
Thanks a lot for your input
Yes you can grant a power of attorney to sell your vehicle. The best option would be to retain an attorney who can draft the power of attorney for the purpose that you need. You should not use a free form because it may give more authority than you would otherwise wish to give. I have seen numerous people get in trouble because they tried to use a form they found online or in a book. If you are military or retired military I would suggest contacting your local JAG office. They will often do these documents free of charge for active duty and veterans.
The responses of Attorney Chris Bect to any questions posed on Avvo do NOT establish an Attorney-client relationship. Attorney Bect is available for private hire and consultation for a fee. Only after Attorney Bect is retained as counsel, or agrees to discuss this matter with you privately, shall he be legally deemed to be your Attorney. His responses herein are an attempt to assist persons temporarily based upon the very extremely amited amount of information provided by the questioner
For example Mr. Beck is making sure you understand you should only give a specific POA, not a general one for example. Good advice.
If military, go to Wright-Patt AFB Legal Assistance Office.
Answering your question does not create an attorney-client relationship. Every case is different and a resolution depends on a thorough review of applicable facts and law. No attorney can guarantee a particular outcome or result.
