Who would need to sign on behalf of heirs or next of kin if the person is a minor child and an affidavit of inheritance is needed?

If an affidavit of inheritance is used, no signature should appear in the place designated for the seller to sign, as it would be inappropriate for anyone other than an executor of the decedent’s estate to sign on behalf of the decedent. However, for purposes of certifying the odometer reading at the time of transfer, the individual indicated as the new owner of the vehicle on the affidavit of inheritance should sign the back of the title in the place designated for the buyer.
