Kansas Motor Vehicle Power of Attorney

A Kansas vehicle power of attorney (Form TR-41) authorizes a person (an agent or attorney-in-fact) to act on the behalf of another person (the principal owner) concerning their vehicle. The agent named in the power of attorney document will be able to handle motor vehicle registration and titling in a county treasurer's office in Kansas with the Division of Motor Vehicles. The agreement will be terminated once the transfer is completed. The contract requires the owner's signature, the agent's name, and the vehicle information to be valid for use

Kansas Motor Vehicle Power of Attorney

If the vehicle is subject to a lien, the owner must include the name of at least one lienholder (this can be added under special instructions). When the vehicle is sold, the owner (or the designated attorney-in-fact) is required to repay the lienholder in full. When it comes to mileage disclosure, the attorney-in-fact cannot be both the buyer and the seller. Instead, the owner must execute a durable power of attorney. Exempt vehicles, such as heavy trucks or automobiles older than ten (10) years, are exempt from this step. Filling out a secured power of attorney ensures that the buyer or seller recorded the odometer reading correctly.
