When you refinance your car, we request that you complete a limited Power of Attorney (POA) form so we can transfer your car title from your previous lender to us. A POA shows that you have authorized the title transfer.
You can download the form right from your To-Do List, print, and fill out each one. If you purchased your car with someone else, there will be two sets to fill out.
- For each form, fill out the fields (because it’s a custom form, it includes only the information required by the state where your car is registered):
- Title State of: The state that issued your car title
- Title County of: The county where your car was originally registered
- Borrower name: Your full name, as it appears on your car title
- Borrower address: Your full address, as it appears on your car title
- VIN: Vehicle Identification Number, which you can find on your registration card or insurance card
- Vehicle year: The model year, which can be different from the year when you bought your car. Find this on your registration card or insurance card
- Vehicle make: The car manufacturer (for example, Ford or Toyota) as shown on your registration card or insurance card
- Vehicle color: The color of your car
- Driver’s license: The state that issues your license, and your driver’s license number
Note: If your POA needs to be notarized, you’ll need to sign the document in a notary public’s presence. For jointly owned cars, you’ll both need to sign in a notary public’s presence.
Note: For your protection, you’ll need to show a government-issue photo ID to the notary public.
PO Box 729
Wilmington, OH 45177
We want to make the best use of your time, so here are a few tips when you fill out the form to ensure we can accept it:
- Print clearly or type in the fields.
- Sign both original forms instead of using a digital signature.
- Don’t cross out or use correction fluid. If you make any mistakes, you’ll need to fill out a new form.
- Mail the original forms to us—don’t send copies.
