While all closing documents must be signed in front of a Georgia attorney, we understand that sometimes everyone isn’t able to make it to our office to sign a tall stack of papers. Virtual closings are not permitted under Georgia Law, but there is an option if you can’t make it to closing.

Name an attorney-in-fact! Simple! If and whenever possible, we’d love to conduct your closing with someone here in our office acting as your attorney-in-fact. Let us do the work for you and you can stay safely at home!

Remember, though!

  • Every power of attorney should be specific to the transaction. Downloading a form off of the internet and filling it out yourself is probably not a good idea.
  • If it’s a borrower needing a power of attorney, then their lender will need to approve both its use and language. Some lenders are absolutely fine with a power of attorney. Others aren’t.
  • If it’s a seller, then a power of attorney is always OK.

If you you think you’ll need a power of attorney for your closing, please let us know as soon as possible. We’ll happily draft one for you, free of charge.
