While all closing documents must be signed in front of a Georgia attorney and we absolutely prefer that everyone attend closing, we know sometimes that’s just not possible. And when that happens, we’ll happily work with your clients to have them sign everything with a power of attorney. That’s no problem at all!
- 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.
