Son gave me permission to sell his car, can I sign the V5 form on his behalf?
My son has gone to USA to work. He asked me to sell his car and has given me written permission to sell it for him. I have sold his car now, but I want to know if I can sign the V5 on his behalf.

In your case, you need to have proof that you bought the car or you're making the payments for the loan. The problem that you will encounter is that he finance has been taken in your ex-partner's name and that in itself means she most likely owns the car, no matter who is settling the debt. But if you can show that the payments are being taken from your bank account, then you may have evidence to dispute and can get ownership of the car.
