A: I’m sorry for your loss

The Power of attorney is no longer in effect upon your Father’s death

However, if he left a Tangible personal property list giving you the car or bequeath the car to you in his will you can get the car titled in you name

A Tag agency with that and a death certificate may be helpful if not please see a Florida estate attorney for proceedings depending on the estate assets
