The Maryland motor vehicle power of attorney, otherwise known as “Form VR-470,” lets the owner of a vehicle choose an agent to register, sell, or obtain a certificate of title on their behalf. The agent has a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the principal. The form must be signed by the owner and may be used in conjunction with any other documents at the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (Find Locations). Once the vehicle transaction has been completed, the contract becomes void.
