My wife and I are in the process of leaving Israel. She has gone abroad with the children to rent a house and find a suitable school. I am staying on for a while in Israel to finish my contract at work and tie up loose ends. We own a car in Israel. Will I be able to sell it if it is in our joint names but my wife is abroad ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 02 May, 2022
Yes, but your wife, the spouse living abroad will have to sign a notary’s power of attorney authorised at an Israeli Consulate abroad, which appoints you, the other spouse, to sell her rights in the car and transfer ownership in Israel . The original power of attorney will need to be sent to Israel in order for the change in ownership of the car to be effected.
