If a visitor in someone else's home puts up a mezuza there, and the homeowner will not be home to hang it/make a bracha, does the visitor make the bracha when affixing it? Does it matter whether or not the visitor was appointed a shaliach?

Seymore, welcome to Mi Yodeya, and thanks very much for bringing your question here! Please note that Mi Yodeya offers information as if from a crowd of your friends and not personal Rabbinic advice, so I have edited your question post accordingly. If this situation affects you practically, I hope you'll consult your rabbi regarding what you should do, possibly armed with useful information gleaned here. I hope you'll keep looking around the site for interesting material, perhaps starting with our 40 other mezuzah questions. –  Isaac Moses Dec 23 '13 at 18:14
