General Information :

I want to sell my car. What do I need to do?
When you sell your car you will need to go to a Notary Public. The Notary will ask you for identification such as your driver’s license.

The seller and the buyer usually go to the Notary together, although the buyer does not have to be present when the seller signs the title.

The back of the title will be filled out with the buyer’s name and address, the selling price, and the miles on the automobile. Then you will sign the title in front of the Notary, and the Notary will sign.

The Notary’s signature verifies that you signed the title transfer of your own free will and that the signature is genuine.

Sometimes other documents are required. You may need a Bill of Sale, an Affidavit or an Act of Donation. Your Notary Public will tell you if other documents are required.

Forms for a cash sale and act of donation are available for download at this site

Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney is a document that authorizes another person to perform certain acts on your behalf. A Power of Attorney can be limited to only one thing. For example, you may need to appoint a person to execute a bill of sale for you should you be out of town for an extended period of time. A Power of Attorney can be very broad. A broad Power of Attorney is called a General Power of Attorney. Even with a General Power of Attorney, you can limit what another is authorized to do on your behalf.

The Power of Attorney may also be drafted to provide durable powers for your agent to act upon in making medical decisions.

Last Will and Testament
A “will” is an instrument by which a person makes a disposition of his property to take effect after his death, and which is revocable during his lifetime. There are two forms of testaments in Louisiana: Olographic and Notarial.

What is an Authentic Act?
An authentic act is a written document signed by each party to the act in the presence of two witnesses and a Notary Public. A deed transferring the title of real estate is an example of an authentic act.

Affidavits – sworn to and written declaration of facts
An Affidavit is a written declaration of facts confirmed by oath or affirmation before a Notary Public or other official authorized to administer oaths.
