If you need to hand over your authority to make decisions on any property to another person, there is a legal way to do that.
The Florida Motor Vehicle Power of Attorney (POA) Form will allow you to hand over your rights to possess, use, and dispose of your car to a person you trust or, rather, a trustee. This power of attorney form comes in handy when you need to go away for a long period or when you know you might become incapable of making these decisions yourself.
Many people use Power of Attorney Forms to assign their confidants the right to act on their behalf when they cannot do that themselves for some reason. The legal rules and regulations for this procedure vary from state to state. We suggest you get acquainted with the local legal base before proceeding to action.

Transfer and other reassignment forms compilation is regulated by the Florida Statutes (Title 23). One has to be very careful when choosing a trustee, as this person will be responsible for the principal’s financial and material assets. That is why people usually choose an old friend or a close relative for this role.
The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is responsible for issuing certificates of titles. Once you finish the paperwork, you will need to mail the POA form or deliver it by courier services to the local DMV office.
Please, note that every certificate must have on its reverse side the following statement: “Federal and state law require the completion of the odometer statement set out below. Failure to complete or providing false information may result in fines, imprisonment, or both.” Without this phrase and the required odometer information, the document is invalid.
