If you want to entrust your properties to an individual or an entity in the United States, you should create and sign a special “power of attorney” (POA) form. For instance, with a Colorado vehicle power of attorney form, you may assign an attorney the responsibility to make decisions regarding your car on your behalf. This happens in such situations as incapacity due to an accident.
A power of attorney form is filled when someone wants to choose an attorney for different kinds of items. For example, you may create such a document for a vehicle, real estate, or taxes. A person who signs the form as an owner is normally called the principal.
