Include language that offers the agent you are assigning, in transferring the property that you own in the document.

Step 2: Check with the Local Authorities Regarding Regulations on the Transfer of Property Ownership. 

Check with the local authorities, for specific requirements on the sale or transfer of real estate ownership. These local authorities will provide a form. If the authorities provide more requirements, make sure you follow directions in completing it. 

Step 3: Provide the Agent with the Original Document and Copies and Have him/her Sign Them. 

If you are transferring property immediately, then the agent has to be given the deed or title immediately. If you expect to transfer property at a much later date, then make sure your assigned agent knows where the deed or title can be taken from. 

As soon as you’re ready for the ownership transfer, the agent should sign on your behalf.

The agent should sign in any of the two ways.  The agent has to bring a copy of the POA document wherever it is needed. He can also attach copies of the POA to a deed or title. The latter is advised. 

Step 4: Make Sure the Agent Attends the Closing of the Property Ownership Transfer.

Make sure that the agent has the POA document and deed in the time of the closing. The agent or the buyer can file the new title with the local authorities, as needed. 

Once you have decided in transferring property which comes with a deed or title, the agent can transfer the property on your behalf.

Take note: It is best to involve a legal consultant with a real estate closing. The agent can transfer ownership of a vehicle but not real estate without the assistance of an attorney.
