You’re out of town and need assistance to complete a transaction. A common method of addressing the problem is through the use of a “power of attorney”. A power of attorney authorizes a third party to act on your behalf in completing the transaction. However, there are specific rules which govern the implementation of an effective power of attorney. Moreover, even if you meet these requirements, you may still encounter difficulties with getting a title company to accept the document. The Drizin Firm can assist you in drafting a power of attorney that will be acceptable to a title company to complete your transaction when you are unable to be present to execute the necessary documents.
