|State law requires applicants to personally sign vehicle
documents. If the vehicle is to be titled to more than one owner but only
one owner makes application to the County Clerk, then the signature of the
other owner must appear on some other document such as a sales contract,
security agreement, et cetera. If applicants want to permit spouse, child
or another person to sign the state application document a notarized Power
of Attorney form must be executed. Need Photo Driver License or other acceptable
photo I.D. Go Here
for acceptable forms of I.D.
Please note this important exception
to the Power of Attorney designation on the odometer certification. The
exception is: The Power of Attorney designation cannot authorize
a person to sign the odometer certification both as the seller and the buyer
of the vehicle.
Commercial Blanket Power of Attorney is used when a business wishes
to authorize representatives to handle transactions or obtain information
relating to company-owned vehicles.
Power of Attorney forms are available at the Courthouse or the Bonny
Oaks Branch office. Also, requests may be made by calling 423/209-6525 or
via our forms website.
