Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
The main thing you need to verify is that he is authorized to sign on behalf of the company.
This is something you can check out before you even go to the tag office on Tuesday.
If you go to the Florida Department of State, Division of Corporations website:
You can search the ownership records of the business. If his name appears in the documents, then he has the authority to sign.
When you go to the website, you need to search under either corporation or limited liability company, depending on what type of business form the business is.
Finally, you can verify if there are any liens on the title by looking at the title. The title office won't transfer it without a release from the lienholder, so this isn't likely to slip through the cracks.
